Thank you from the Stroke Foundation

Thank you for standing with us in the fight against stroke


2018 was a big year here at the Stroke Foundation, and we couldn’t have done it without the support of everyday Australians like you. It is only in partnership with compassionate people like you that we are able to make an impact.

In fact, it is you who is “powering” our work and it is you who is making it happen. Thank you. When you donate so generously to our work, you’re changing the landscape of stroke prevention, treatment and care in Australia.

Every gift makes a difference to all those impacted by stroke – survivors, carers, family members, researchers and health professionals. This is why we are so grateful for your support. Your generosity allows us to work every day to prevent, treat and beat stroke.


Here are just some of the ways your support has helped to make a difference in 2018:
