Community Fundraising

Thank you for your interest in fundraising for Spinal Cord Injuries Australia. One person every day in Australia will sustain a life changing spinal cord injury. Through your fundraising efforts, you will raise awareness of this disability in your community and raise much needed funds to help people with a spinal cord injury achieve their goals and live full and independent lives.

Fundraising can take all shapes and forms and we’re always interested in hearing your ideas! Often the simplest ideas are the best!

If you would like to fundraise for Spinal Cord Injuries Australia, please read our Community Fundraising Kit which is full of great ideas and useful guidelines. There is also an Authority to Fundraise form which needs to be submitted to SCIA before you embark on your fundraising adventure. Download the SCIA Community Fundraising Kit here.
