Make a Tax-Deductible Donation
Donations make it possible for us to provide services and support to people with Fragile X, their families and carers. We receive no government funding, and financial gifts to the Association underpin the work we do.
Your tax-deductible donation will make an important difference to our ability to provide a free counselling service and help line, educational workshops, information about Fragile X, and access to assessment clinics. It will allow us to increase awareness of Fragile X in the community and among health professionals, and will support our capacity to connect Fragile X families to others.
Gifts of $2.00 and over to Fragile X Association are tax deductible.

Use of Your Donation
We invite you to nominate where your donation will be directed. Your donation can support our work and capacity on a day to day basis, or can be directed to the Fragile X Association Endowment Fund.
The Fragile X Association of Australia Endowment Fund was established in 2012 as a designated fund for major donations and bequests. The Fund is retained separate from the Association’s operational funds and is invested to generate income to ensure the long term survival and operation of the Association. The Endowment Fund’s investment strategy is to provide a conservative and prudent framework within which the fund may grow its capital to earn income long into the future. (see Fragile X Endowment Fund.)

To receive a tax refund for your donation, the Australian Taxation Office only requires you to keep a record of your Donation Form or your direct bank deposit, or keep the receipt we will send you.
