Ways to help

Donate – In Memory, In Celebration, Sponsor


Do you have time, skills and expertise to share?

Volunteers play a very important role in the Charlie Teo Foundation. In many ways volunteers are our backbone, helping in so many essential ways. This means we can direct more funds to research where it makes a difference.

Would you like to help?

We are always looking for volunteers, especially around busy times and events. Here are some areas where we especially need help, but all are welcome.





The best thing to do is complete our Volunteer Form and we will be in touch as soon as possible.

Regular giving

Regular giving is one of the most effective ways to support the Charlie Teo Foundation. Knowing we can rely on your regular contribution allows us to work with the researchers to plan for the future.

Becoming a regular giver means you will be making a direct and ongoing impact to the lives of brain cancer patients giving them hope of better treatments.


Easy and Flexible

Regular giving is easy and flexible. Each month your chosen amount is automatically debited from your credit card. You can increase, decrease or cancel your monthly donation at any time by contacting us.

Once you have signed up, we will send you a letter confirming your payment details and welcoming you as one of our valued supporters.

We will send you a receipt every July for all your donations received in the previous financial year which you can then use for tax purposes.

Become a regular giver today.

Please complete our Regular Giving Form and we will be in touch as soon as possible.

Leaving a Gift in your Will

It is important for everyone to have a valid will. As part of your estate planning you may consider recognising the work of charities that have impacted the lives of you and your family, do work that you believe in and admire.

Leaving a gift in your will is a powerful way for your work to continue and benefit future generations.

Here are some options:

  • Residue or part of the residue of your estate (what remains after specific gifts have been made).
  • Percentage of the residue or the estate.
  • A specific lump sum.
  • A specific asset such as property, shares or bonds.

The first two options are the most significant as they hold their value over time.

Below is an example of wording that can be discussed with your solicitor, added to a new will or if you have an existing will, can be added by a codicil:

“I give and bequeath to the Charlie Teo Foundation ABN 57622041061, the residue / a percentage / a specific sum / a piece of property / an item] of my estate to support brain cancer research, free of all duties and taxes including, if any CGT, and the receipt of the Chief Executive Officer, Secretary or other authorised officer will be a complete and sufficient discharge for the executors.”

Work Place Giving

Our work place giving program allows you to regularly donate from your pre-tax pay to the Charlie Teo Foundation through your employer’s payroll system.

You can determine how much you would like to contribute and your donation can be stopped or altered at any time. You do not have to collect, keep or claim receipts your donations will be processed with your pay and you will get an immediate, guaranteed tax deduction.

Your donation will be made pre-tax so that it will cost you less than the amount we receive from your payroll office.

By joining your colleagues in our work place giving program your regular contributions accumulate to make a significance difference in lives of brain cancer patients.

Hold Your Own Fundraiser

Fundraising is one of the most powerful and fun ways that you can get involved and contribute directly to the Charlie Teo Foundation.

The key to successful fundraising is doing something fun that suits your audience.

Organise your own individual or team fundraising event, collect donations as part of a special celebration or in memory of someone, or join a community event and ask your friends and family to sponsor you.

We welcome new ideas – take your passion, have some fun and raise those funds for our local researchers. Together we are working towards a world free of brain cancer.

How to Get Started?

We have put together a Fundraising Guide which is packed with ideas and tips to make sure your fundraising is successful and fun.

You can also complete our Community Fundraising Form and we will be in touch as soon as possible to discuss how we can help make your fundraising day a success.
