Thank you for choosing to donate to the Clown Doctors!
We rely on your support to continue to provide children in hospital with the best medicine of all: laughter!
GIVING A RECURRING DONATION
Monthly giving is one of the most effective ways to support our cause! Your small, monthly, tax deductible donation helps us plan for the future and makes sure Clown Doctors can continue to be where they are needed most – at the bedside of sick kids.
HOW IT WORKS
When you sign up, your bank and personal details are encrypted in our database. This makes them protected and secure. We then deduct your nominated amount once a month.
We will contact you a few times a year with reports from the wards and a special Clown Doctors calendar that is ONLY sent to regular donors (YOU!). You will be able to see how your donation is being used and the difference it makes in the lives of sick kids.
Contact us today for more information on becoming a monthly donor, or call us on 1300 486 687.
MAKE AN INDIVIDUAL GIFT:
Did you know it costs over $30,000* annually to place a Clown Doctor in a hospital? To provide the best possible impact Clown Doctors work in pairs, so that’s over $60,000 needed for each new location we want to expand into. Thanks to many wonderful donors giving both large and small amounts, we are currently spreading doses of joy and laughter in 23 hospitals and one palliative care facility, nationally. Right now we have hospitals wait-listed to receive our services. Your donation could make all the difference.
If you would like to make an individual gift you can donate online or contact us directly for further assistance.
All donations over $2 are tax deductible. Gifts over $5,000 can be directed to a specific project or location.
