Pill Testing Fundraiser

We need your help to raise $100,000 to introduce pill testing throughout Australia

Harm Reduction Australia (HRA) is part of the Safety Testing Advisory Service At Festivals and Events (STA-SAFE) Consortium that conducted the first officially sanctioned pill testing pilot in Australia (Pill Testing Pilot ACT June 2018 Final Report).  The pilot was overwhelmingly successful.

What is less well known is that the pilot was able to proceed because of the financial and voluntary contributions of HRA, members of the STA-SAFE Consortium and the pro-bono contributions of a number of supporters. This included legal advice and the free loan of the equipment needed to conduct the on-site chemical analysis of samples presented by patrons at the festival.

We now need to raise funds to run further pilot programs

Become an 'honorary shareholder' or a 'supporter' for all future pill testing pilot programs

HRA is offering individuals and organisations the opportunity to donate funds and be publicly listed as ‘honorary supporters’.  The donation required is a minimum of $500 per share, with the opportunity to acquire more than one share.  You will be listed on the HRA website and will have the choice of being listed as individuals, organisations, and corporations or as anonymous. See list here.
HRA realises that some organisations or individuals may not have the capacity to purchase honorary shares.  You are able to donate any amount under $500 and be listed as a ‘supporter’.  See list here.
HRA will also list organisations and individuals unable to make any financial contribution but who wish to have their support for pill testing publicly acknowledged  on the HRA website.  See list here.

Note that as a general principle, HRA does not accept funding if it any way limits or constrains our advocacy for harm reduction policies and programs.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
