SBFV is in great need of your support

Spina Bifida Foundation Victoria is in great need of your support to ensure its continued existence.

The new committee of management has had to move quickly to prevent the need for immediate closure of the Foundation due to lack of funds.

The Foundation has had to be transitioned into a volunteer run organisation. Unfortunately we are no longer able to employ our dear staff Jennifer Callaway and Michele Cutajar. Michele is likely to continue in some capacity on a volunteer basis. Sadly, Jennifer will be leaving the Foundation at the end of March to find new employment. We wish her all the best in her future endeavours and thank her for her years of hard work for the Foundation. She will be greatly missed.

The office will no longer operate out of Ross House from 23 April, however the mailing address will remain the same. The office phone number will be diverted and will still be answered by a volunteer, as will emails to the SBFV email addresses. 

The committee is working hard to keep the Foundation afloat and turn it into a viable organisation over the next six months. However, if things do not change significantly in that time we will be forced to close the Foundation. We ask that you support us in any way you can (volunteering, fundraising, funding opportunities, donations…) in this very difficult time and thank you for your ongoing support.
