Cardiovascular disease, such as heart attacks and stroke, takes one Australian life every 13 minutes. Striking without warning. Devastating families. Shattering lives.

That’s why this October, we’re asking you to Give with Heart.

Donate today – together, we can make heart disease history.

What is Give With Heart Day?

Give With Heart Day is the Heart Foundation's annual fundraising challenge.

This year, with your help, we’re aiming to raise $4 million to support urgent medical research into lesser known heart conditions such as rheumatic heart disease in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, congenital heart disease in children, and heart disease in cancer survivors.

How is my donation helping to fight heart disease?

For over 60 years, the Heart Foundation has been funding ground-breaking medical research that have saved thousands of Australian lives. With heart disease still this country's single biggest killer, we're once again counting on your support this Give with Heart Day to help us make heart disease history.

Shining a spotlight on the unexpected

This year we are shining the light on heart conditions you may not expect. Conditions that impact not only older males, but women, children, seemingly fit and healthy young people.

Geoff Lester

As a fit and athletic 24-year-old, Geoff Lester almost dismissed the strange feeling he had in his arm. A last-minute decision to head to the hospital probably saved his life.

Warrawatja Bell

Warrawatja Bell was training for a boxing match when he felt a tingling sensation down his left side. It was a heart attack he never saw coming.

Thank you to our generous partners

A big thank you to our Supporters

The real heroes who are kindly helping us achieve our goal

I thought I was a healthy 58 yr old who didn't drink or smoke until I woke one morning while on holiday in Cairns with a severe pain in my back under my shoulder blade, the pain soon started shooting down my left arm, I knew it was a heart attack. Every day I thank the amazing Drs and nurses who work in the ER and cardiology wing at Cairns hospital, especially Dr Greg Starmer who I call my saviour. I now get to watch my 2 small grandchildren grow up.
