Games Fundraising

The Games are a great event for raising awareness for organ and tissue donation. They have a clear impact on donor rates each year that they are held. This is because of the personal stories of triumph over illness that we’re able to share with Australia through our media program. The Games showcase organ and tissue donation is a positive light.

Transplant Australia offers athletes the opportunity to raise funds through our Charity Challenge Program. This program is designed to help athletes attend the games by meeting some or all of their Games costs, while also helping those on the transplant waiting list. All donations toward Transplant Australia above $2.00 are fully tax deductible.

How Does It Work?

To enrol in the Charity Challenge program simply complete the Charity Challenge Application form and send it back to the National Office by  email ian.atkin@transplant.org.au or fax: (02) 9954 6412 to receive your Authority to fund raise.
