Like you, at Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA) we believe that those who live with allergic disease and the risk of anaphylaxis deserve to live their best life.
Your support makes that a reality and helps improves the day to day lives of families and individuals living with allergic disease.
A&AA receives thousands of requests for information and support every year. Your support helps to educate all about the impact of allergic disease. A&AA works closely with government, food industry, food service, health and teaching professionals and the community at large, as well as running Australia’s national support line for those needing guidance and support.
Without your valued support – none of this is possible.
We encourage our supporters to fundraise for A&AA where and when they can.

Fundraising is not only a great way to raise funds for A&AA but to also have fun socially with family members, school mates, work colleagues, community groups and friends!
Coming up with ideas can sometimes be where we become uncertain, so we have broken down ideas into 3 main groups, which will give guidance to some “FUN”draising ideas.
Getting started is easy! Just choose from one of the options or create your own and you’re on your way.
