Where does the money I raise go?

Vital fundraising events such as 27forParkinson’s are more important than ever to raise funds to provide enhanced levels of support for those living with Parkinson’s during these challenging times.

All funds raised will go toward supporting people living with Parkinson’s.

  • $27 raised provides 3 people living with Parkinson’s an individual information kit when they are recently diagnosed
  • $70 raised provides 1 person living with Parkinson’s to receive individual planning and support from our multi-disciplined health team
  • $125 raised allows 1 person living young with Parkinson’s to access online education
  • $200 allows 1 person to participate in the online Living Well with Parkinson's Series
  • $540 establishes 2 Peer Support Group Online Networking Groups
I shared my page on Facebook and created a Facebook Donate Button. Why can’t I see my donations?

Facebook donations are handled by a third party, and unfortunately, we are unable to sync these donations with your personal 27forParkinson’s fundraising page.

We advise that you don’t use the Facebook Donate button so your donations can be linked to your fundraising page and the event. Please utilise the Event Platform for all your fundraising.

If you have already set-up a fundraising post with a Facebook Donate button, we recommend that you:

  1. Delete the post, as this is the only way to remove the Facebook Donate button
  2. Create a new Facebook post and only share the link to your fundraising page, without adding the 'Donate' button
