MND Australia is the national voice for people living with motor neurone disease and invests in research, care and advocacy to improve the lives of everyone impacted by MND.

Through our research arm, MND Research Australia, we fund world-class research for better treatments, improved care and ultimately a cure for MND.

Our national advocacy activities ensure the voices of people living with MND are heard by the Government on the issues that matter: disability support and services, palliative care, aged care, support for carers and research funding.

The diagnosis of motor neurone disease can be devastating and people with MND and their families need access to the highest quality information. Your donation will also enable us to produce national publications and online resources that are crucial for informing people at every stage of the disease, as well as the health professionals who care for them.

MND Australia is a Health Promotion Charity and is registered with the Australian Charities and not-for-profits Commission. ABN – 52 650 269 176, ARBN – 609051792

You should seek legal advice from a solicitor or authorised trustee company because it is important your wishes are properly expressed, and that the correct legal wording is used. You can choose to leave a gift in your will to MND Australia or directly to our research arm, MND Research Australia.
