Like all good partnerships, each party needs to understand the other. To that end, as part of exploring a Corporate Partnership with NeuRA, we would like to:

  • Understand your marketing, business and community objectives
  • Identify specific areas of research your business would like to align with
  • Learn about your brand and values
  • Uncover common ground – where programs could deliver tangible benefits to both organisations
  • Discuss ways a strategic partnership could be promoted for mutual benefit

There are a number of ways corporations can partner with NeuRA in a tailored, mutually beneficial way, including:

  • Funding a specific researcher
  • Sponsorship of a NeuRA event or affiliated events
  • Investment in a specific area of our research.
Workplace Giving

A Workplace Giving program with matching support from your organisation is one of the most effective ways to donate.

Workplace Giving is simple employees support NeuRA through their payroll, with many benefits to both the individual and their employer.

Benefits to employees

  • Donations are tax deductible from their income, meaning that the tax benefit is immediate
  • Provides confidence that each donation is maximised (as the amount given is pre-tax dollars)
  • Access to a complete record of donations for the financial year
  • Start, stop or change the amount of donations at any time

Benefits to employers

  • Increase your company’s profile and reputation externally to the wider community
  • Raise staff morale knowing that the company takes action on corporate social responsibility
  • The workplace giving scheme is easy for payroll to administer, and can be used to monitor the level of charitable giving your company is achieving
  • Provides an opportunity for the company to match employee giving, demonstrating to staff that their interests are supported by the organisation they work for
Event Participation

Your organisation can support NeuRA by engaging your employees to raise funds through hosting or participating in events around Australia.

Coming together to raise funds for vital medical research can be a great way to boost morale and encourage team bonding while making a tangible difference to the lives of others.

Your employees can host their own event or participate in a community-run challenge. Visit our Community Fundraising page to find out how to set up an online fundraising profile to get started.

Accounting Firm PKF Lawler Tamworth and Walcha, NSW ran the City2Surf in support of motor neurone disease (MND) research at NeuRA. Evan Brownsmith was their team leader.

We cannot directly improve the lives of MND sufferers, nor can we make it easier on their families. We cannot hope to cure this terrible disease ourselves, but we know that our contribution to NeuRA will help the very people who just might. Perhaps more importantly, through demonstrating a willingness to ‘give it a go’, we are setting a great example to the community of Tamworth. We want to show that it’s important to get out there and have a crack, not because we should, but because we still can.
