Your philanthropy is important to people with asthma

Your philanthropic gift could be the cornerstone of groundbreaking initiatives. You can make a tangible difference in the lives and communities of people living with asthma.  

It’s through ongoing support from heroes like you that we can help people with asthma breathe better and live freely. That’s why we pride ourselves on getting to know you. We invite you to be involved in the work that you are making possible.  

By choosing to support Asthma Australia you’re breathing life into a future where no one dies from this chronic condition. More than 400 people die most years from asthma attacks. Help us save 400 Australians.


How we change lives with your philanthropy

Your support enables Australia’s only dedicated asthma research fund to conduct research on issues that matter to people with asthma as identified in the National Asthma Research Agenda Project. 

 But your contribution won’t just stop at research. 

You could be the reason that a person with asthma avoids an asthma attack or hospitalisation. Because of philanthropists like you people with asthma can manage their triggers using a smartphone app called AirSmart. 

 AirSmart displays the air quality rating for your local area so you can make an informed decision about your day and manage your triggers. This will especially come in handy when bushfires or high pollen days create low air quality making it harder for everyone to breathe, especially people with asthma.

Thank you

We are incredibly thankful for the generosity of the individuals and foundations who believe in our work.  Much of what we’re able to accomplish is because of bequests, estates, and individuals – especially our work in changing systems, advocating for better policies to support people with asthma and funding Australia’s only dedicated asthma research program.
