Workplace giving

Workplace giving through automated payroll deductions is easy and effective - you simply pledge a nominated amount and your employer sends it directly to us. With workplace giving, you get the tax benefit of your donation immediately. And, if your company matches your charitable contribution, the impact of your gift to the Florey could be doubled or even tripled. Based on ABS Australia labour market statistics of March 2005, if just 10% of the Australian workforce donated $5 a week from their pay, an extra $250 million per year would be raised for charitable purposes of all kinds!

Tributes or in memoriam gifts

Supporting the Florey can be a meaningful way to honour or pay tribute to a special friend or loved one. You can dedicate a gift on behalf of that person, or as a part of an event like a wedding or significant birthday. We will send the person or family a letter notifying them of your gift, and send a tax receipt to you.

Private Ancillary Funds (PAF)

If you are setting up a Private Ancillary Fund (PAF), please contact the Community Engagement and Fundraising manager to discuss your interest in brain research, and how you can be a part of our mission.

Taxation receipts

Gifts of $2 and over are tax deductible and a receipt will be provided.

Victorian Brain Bank (VBB)

The Victorian Brain Bank (VBB) is a collaboration between brain banks across Australia, and aims to optimise the collection, handling and use of post-mortem (autopsy) brain tissue and related samples for research.

Such research is of fundamental importance in helping scientists understand the causes of brain and mind conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, bipolar mood disorder, depression, motor neuron disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia and other neurological and psychiatric diseases, and complements techniques such as neuroimaging technology, animal models and cell culture systems in developing more effective diagnostic tools and treatments.

Brains from those who are not affected by such disorders also are needed as comparisons to determine the changes caused by various brain diseases.
