Over the last few weeks, we have been receiving donations via PayPal which appear not to have been authorised by the PayPal account holder. Obviously we would like to accept all donations, however we don't want to do so if they weren't intended. If you have noticed unusual activity on your PayPal account, and a payment has been made to Parkinson's Australia which was not intended, please log into your account as soon as possible and lodge a request for a refund. This ensures we can process the refund immediately to you from our PayPal account. We have reported all this unusual activity to PayPal as well.
Parkinson’s Australia relies on the generous support of individuals and corporations to help us continue work to support and advocate for the Parkinson’s community in Australia. If you intend for your donation to go directly to a State or Territory Parkinson’s organisation, please click on the State/Territory link at the top of this page. Please note that Parkinson's Australia does not use telemarketers and does not call anyone soliciting donations.
There are several ways you can donate to Parkinson's Australia listed below (scroll down to view). If you are making a donation in memorial to someone and would like a letter of acknowledgement to be sent to their family, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details.
