Here at MAD, not only do we strive to Make A Difference in the community, but we do this in a different way. MAD has developed a unique funding model whereby we “bridge the gap” in funding between the cost of the equipment or service requested and the amount of funding available from government sources. Without MAD’s support, many of these requests would not be possible as the cost involved is significant. Over its 24 year journey the MAD Foundation has directly supported hundreds of beneficiaries and their families with over $2.3 Million dollars of equipment and services.

Thanks to the continuing relationship between MAD and the Department of Neurodevelopment and Disability, Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne and other associated organisations, MAD has been able to provide a number of children with equipment, facilities, therapy services and personal care that would otherwise not be affordable.

Here are a few of the many thank-you’s MAD receives. Each situation is different and as you can see, your generosity has truly Made A Difference to the lives of these children and their families.
