We are incredibly grateful to have the support from governments, businesses and individuals who are committed to helping us improve the lives of people living with asthma.

We especially thank individuals and families who bequest funds to Asthma Australia to support the work we do, including our research program.

Asthma Australia is the national charity for people with asthma and is not-for-profit. We receive funding from Federal and State and Territory Governments including New South Wales, Queensland, the Australian Capital Territory and Tasmania to support our services. This includes providing resources, information and education around the quality use of medications and our campaigns that help people breathe better.

Asthma Australia receives unrestricted grants from pharmaceutical companies, but you can be confident that we retain full independence of the use of these funds, aligned with Medicines Australia requirements.

With the support of businesses, individuals, communities and governments we will continue doing what we can to reduce the impact asthma is having on Australian lives and families.

For a full breakdown of funding and how it’s spent, please see our latest Impact Report.
