Workplace giving

Workplace giving is a simple, cost effective way to support us. Your generosity will enable us to continue to support individuals in your community who have sustained a spinal injury.

Your donation will be automatically deducted from each pay before tax is calculated, and the donation will be sent directly to us from your payroll system.

Make your birthday a real cause for celebration

Nine-year-old Ben Henderson (pictured) didn’t want an ipad or the latest Xbox game for his birthday.

The Townsville Year Four pupil wanted to enhance the lives of local people with spinal cord injuries by forgoing birthday presents for a year and instead, asked family and friends to donate to Spinal Life Australia!

“I wanted to raise money for people to help them with buying equipment like wheelchairs”

Inspired? You can do it too

Download a flyer to hold a birthday appeal for Spinal Life Australia

Then, simply attach the flyer to your birthday invitations or give to family and friends. They then send their completed donation form directly to us.

Your friends can donate as little or as much as they would like. We’ll let you know who has generously donated but will respect their privacy by not disclosing the size of individual donations. However much your friends and family raise, you’ll know that your birthday celebration has contributed to the lives of people with spinal cord injuries throughout Queensland.
