At Shake It Up Australia Foundation we passionately believe that there is a way for everyone to make a difference.
What makes your contribution to Shake It Up so unique is that 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to medical research. This pledge is made possible by our founding directors’ commitment to fund all of the Foundation’s outgoings. All donations to Shake It Up Australia are also fully Tax Deductible.
Whether you are attending one of our events, hosting your own event, participating in an athletic event, becoming a regular donor or joining us as a corporate partner, there are plenty of ways you can help speed a cure for Parkinson’s.
Trek for Treatment - Larapinta 2019
As part of this incredible adventure, you will experience it all and more as you trek along the legendary Larapinta Trail. Joined by likeminded Shake It Up Australia Foundation supporters, you will visit sites sacred to the Arrernte people and learn the history of Australia’s traditional owners by day. By night, you fall asleep to the sounds of native wildlife under a blanket of stars.
Host your Own Event
Whether it is a movie night, morning tea, golf day, bridge day or trivia night the variety of events able to be run by our Heroes is extraordinary. Some events range from a small group gathering for coffee with a gold coin donation to an exclusive golf day and lunch for 150 people. The point is that everyone can do something.
We guarantee that 100% of every financial contribution goes to medical research targeted at finding better treatments and ultimately a cure.
Our founding directors personally fund all the administration and overhead costs of the foundation so your donation is making a real difference in the fight against Parkinson’s.
Sign up to make a regular tax deductible donation of $50/month and you become part of the team.
As a Mover and Shaker you will be the first to know about new research projects and the progress of existing projects that you are helping to fund.
For the fully tax deductible cost of just $1.60 per day you can join this vital part of our team – that’s less than your daily cup of coffee.
It’s often hard to know how to commemorate a family member, friend or colleague who has passed away. Donating to Parkinson’s research in their memory is a positive and lasting way of celebrating their life, while helping to raise vital funds for Parkinson’s research.
It’s a common misconception that only very wealthy people leave money to charity in their wills. The reality is that most bequests are made by ordinary, hardworking people who want to make a positive difference to causes they care about after they’re gone.
However large or small, a bequest to Shake It Up will make a difference. It will allow Australia’s leading Parkinson’s researchers to focus their attention on finding the cause, better treatments and ultimately a cure for Parkinson’s.
