Why Fundraise?

Why Support Us?

Your donation is so much more than financial support. It is a way to show your commitment to a more inclusive Australia and an opportunity to show our Para-athletes that you value their contribution in changing attitudes and inspiring the next generation.


With your support, you will do so much more than help send the Australian Team to the Paralympic Games. Your support gives the 20% of Australians with a disability a chance to shine through sports and community programs. It will:

  • Change perceptions by normalising disability and creating a more inclusive Australia.
  • Educate through our curriculum-based schools program that inspires, informs and challenges Australian students.
  • Innovate and develop better, more accessible equipment so that everyone with a disability has the chance to participate in Para-sport and do their best.
  • Identify and develop the next generation of Para-athletes so that they can excel on the world stage.
  • Create and run sports and community programs that enable more people with impairments to discover and affirm their capability.
