Fundraise to save Australian hearts

Join our community of fundraisers who are committed to taking action to fight heart disease.

Heart disease devastates the homes and hearts of Australians. Sadly, it’s our biggest killer. But there is something you can do to make a difference.

Ask your friends, family and colleagues to support you and raise money for Australian hearts. Together, we can help end heart disease.

Register your fundraiser today and join our community of fundraisers who are committed to taking action to fight heart disease.

How will I be making a difference?

The funds you raise will: 
  • Contribute to lifesaving heart disease research
  • Support health professionals to prevent, diagnose and treat heart disease
  • Provide programs and advice for people at risk of heart disease.
Every donation helps in the fight against heart disease.

Host an event

Whether it’s a gala dinner with 200 guests, a trivia night with friends, or an office morning tea, the type of event you host is up to you.

Take on a challenge

Ride 100kms in a week, hike Mount Kosciuszko, or walk a marathon over a month – your next physical challenge is a great opportunity to raise funds for Australian hearts.

Celebrate 

Mark your special day by requesting donations instead of gifts.

Quit

Give up something to look after your heart, ask people to make a donation to support you, and help save someone else's heart at the same time. 

Do it your way

Be unique, create your own idea and show your true passion for the fight against heart disease. 

How do I get started?

Fundraising for the Heart Foundation is easy and fun. Start your fundraiser today in three simple steps:

1.      Register – register your fundraiser on our Do it for Heart website. 

2.      Create your page and get support – when you register, you’ll get an online fundraising page that you can update and share with friends and family. You’ll also get access to our fundraising experts, who can help you with tips and ideas every step of the way.

3.      Collect donations using your online fundraising page – the funds you raise will help fight heart disease and save Aussie hearts.
