Community fundraising

There are so many great reasons to fundraise for NeuRA, such as the chance to take on a new challenge or meet like-minded individuals, but arguably the most meaningful reason of all is the opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of people living with brain and nervous system disorders.

Whether it’s running a marathon or hosting your own fundraising event, the funds you raise will go directly towards life-changing medical research.

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank the many individuals, community groups, organisations and companies, past and present, that support our vital research by choosing to raise funds for NeuRA.

However you choose to fundraise, we’re here to support you all the way.

How to fundraise

Step 1: Choose your activity

Decide how you’d like to fundraise. You can take part in an existing challenge such as City2Surf or Bridge to Brisbane, or host your own fundraiser such as a trivia night, morning tea, fete, sports day or movie premiere. You could also choose to buy an Entertainment Book (you won’t need to complete the following steps if you go for this option).

Step 2: Create a fundraising page

Once you’ve decided on how you’d like to fundraise, create your personal fundraising page via GoFundraise and send a message to your friends and family explaining why you are passionate about supporting NeuRA and would like their support. You can use your personal fundraising page for any event you’d like to host or take part in.

Step 3: Make it official

Once you’ve created an online fundraising page, please download our application form and have a read of our fundraising guidelines. Please email your completed application form to or post to:

Events Team

NeuRA Foundation

After reviewing your application, we will provide you with an ‘Authority to Fundraise’ letter to raise funds on our behalf. You can also choose to direct funds raised towards a specific program area.

Step 4: Deposit your donation

Please transfer funds raised to NeuRA within 14 days of completing your event or activity. Our preference is that you use our online donation form but if you’d prefer another method, please get in touch with the NeuRA Foundation team on 1300 888 019, 02 9399 1122 or

Jake ran the Run Melbourne event as one of NeuRA’s youngest fundraisers. Here's how he felt about the experience:

The experience of running my first Half Marathon was gruelling and emotional but coupled with the funds I raised for NeuRA, it was ultimately a rewarding one. I ran in the ‘Run Melbourne’ event and with my sister Tali, who completed the 10km run we raised a total of $3,084, exceeding our already ambitious goal of $2,500. Our grandmother suffers from Parkinson’s Disease and the research conducted to prevent, treat and cure degenerative neurological diseases like Parkinson’s made NeuRA an obvious choice for the charity we volunteered to support. The help and support I received from NeuRA during my fundraising endeavour made the experience much more fulfilling and really made me feel proud to be supporting NeuRA.
