All funds raised allow IDFA to continue our ongoing work in supporting Australians living with primary and secondary immunodeficiencies. We do this by:
- Providing free resources (hard copy and e-resources)
- Hosting patient meetings and conferences
- Hosting special events and activities for IDFA members (online and in-person)
- Engaging medical experts, researchers and allied health professionals to participate in our events
- Education and mentoring programs
- Advocacy and awareness campaigns
IDFA engages the services of International Entertainment, a leading commercial fundraiser who organises and markets several shows on our behalf. Businesses are encouraged to sponsor tickets to our shows which in turn support children with special needs and disadvantaged families within their community. Tickets are given to these families to provide respite and an exciting and fun experience they might not be able to afford otherwise.
Through the profits received from ticket sales IDFA can continue to support patients and families living with immunodeficiencies. Funds raised pay for printing of resources, education programs, patient meetings and conferences.
