Why work with MedicAlert Foundation?

As a not-for-profit organisation that receives no government funding, we rely on the kind support and donations from Rotary Clubs to achieve our goals.

With the help of Rotary Clubs, we have been able to:

  • Educate GPs about the importance of MedicAlert Foundation, and encourage them to recommend MedicAlert membership to their patients
  • Keep annual membership fees affordable
  • Provide benevolent support to members who are financially disadvantaged
  • Continue providing our vital service to those who need it most.

Given recent changes to the Australian New Zealand Council of Resuscitation Guidelines, it’s more important than ever for first responders to check for a MedicAlert medical ID. As a result of our lobbying, ANZCOR Guideline 2 now recommends that first responders, health professionals and first aiders always look for alert jewellery in an emergency. That’s why your donations can help make a difference.

How can your Club help?

There are many ways your Rotary Club can continue to support MedicAlert Foundation, including:

  • Adopting MedicAlert Foundation as a Community Service Project by donating $5 per club member
  • Promoting and increasing Club participation through the Annual Rotary MedicAlert Club Supporter Program
  • Purchasing a MedicAlert medical ID and/or paying the annual membership fee for local community members in need
  • Increasing awareness of MedicAlert through regular articles in Club newsletters
  • Recommending MedicAlert to community members, friends or family who need our lifesaving service
  • Asking your Club’s President to provide a testimonial about why you support MedicAlert Foundation
  • Letting us know about your experiences with MedicAlert Foundation and/or our members.

All Club members receive a free Dinner Plaque Sticker for donations over $5.
