Brainchild Foundation's mission is to provide emotional, financial and educational support to the families of Australian children who have been diagnosed with tumours of the brain or spinal cord.

This support is inclusive of:

  • emergency financial relief
  • tutoring assistance for young people returning to school or tertiary education after treatement 
  • helping with the cost of out of pocket rehabilitation services 
  • family camps and respite that provide well deserved fun for all the family
  • bereavement support

These devastating diseases need to be attacked from many sides and Brainchild is also committed to allocating funds to paediatric brain cancer research to help find better treatments and a cure for future generations.

Your donation, big or small, will help us to continue to make a difference in the lives of these families during the most stressful and frightening time of their lives and as we are a volunteer run charity, you can rest assured that 95% of your donation will be used to support families in need.

The following is an example of how your donation can help:

Will provide a family with a fuel voucher to assist with the numerous trips to hospital

Will provide a family with shopping vouchers while away from home

Will help a family to pay for household bills while they are at their child's bedside

Will assist a bereaved family with the cost of their precious child's funeral

Will provide one young person with a 'Better Tomorrow's scholarship', giving them access to tutoring or rehab assistance

Will help us to hold an annual camp for families to have some fun and meet others who 'get what they are going through'

Will assist us to continue to provide essential research grants to world class Australian researchers

Thank you for supporting Brainchild in our quest of  '...beating childhood brain tumours for better tomorrows...'
