Why Fundraise?

Why Support Us?

Help us give Australians with disabilities more opportunities to shine.

With the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games now postponed until 2021, Paralympics Australia finds itself in an unprecedented position – 12 months of unexpected costs to cover whilst ensuring our Para-athletes and Paralympians continue preparing for the Games.

With your support, you will not only be helping us send the Australian Team to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. You’ll also be helping us to:

  • Run sports and community programs that enable more people with impairments to discover and affirm their capability.
  • Identify and develop high-potential Para-athletes, and run high performance programs so that they can excel on the world stage – showing every Australian what people with impairments can do when given the chance.
  • Develop better, more innovative equipment so that our athletes have every chance to give their best.
  • Distribute equipment to up-and-coming athletes who need it most.

The plane illustrates a snapshot of the many moving parts that go into sending the Australian Paralympic Team to the Paralympic Games.

It shows just some of what is required to give our Para-athletes the best chance to excel, and highlights the many different resources required to support athletes with an impairment.
