Still Aware is entirely funded by donors and supporters. We rely solely on the generous tax-deductible donations of people in our community who believe in our cause, and want to help us create change.
"Why should I donate to Still Aware?"
Stillbirth is the leading cause of infant death in Australia, with 6 babies born still every day. Still Aware is a tax-deductible (DGR Tier 1 status) Australian charity dedicated to tackling this devastating epidemic through empowerment, education, awareness, and advocacy.
Still Aware take a science-first approach with prevention at the core. We educate clinicians on how to spot risks, empower women to listen to their intuition, advocate for legislative change at a federal level, and raise awareness about stillbirth and the associated stigma.
Still Aware is backed by a Clinical Advisory Board, giving you confidence that every piece of information is up-to-date and scientifically accurate. Our charity is also guided by a Consumer Advisory Board made up of parents in the community, enforcing transparency and a community-driven approach to change.
"What are your administration costs?"
We are solely funded by the generosity of our donors, and as a result, must be vigilant with every dollar that comes into our charity. We are proud to say that our administration costs are a low 8.5% - a figure we could not achieve without our community of amazing volunteers.
