If you love music and care about the people who make it, you have come to the right place.
You can make a general donation to support our work where it is needed most or direct your gift into a specific Help A Mate appeal.

Support Act is a charity, unique in Australia, helping artists and music workers in crisis. This may be due to illness, injury, a mental health problem or some other crisis that impacts on their ability to work in music. Support Act receives no money from any government agency and we must therefore fundraise every dollar we need to deliver our service.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible and will be issued with an instant tax receipt.

Here are some of the ways you can help


Every donation we receive helps to make a difference. You can choose where your gift goes.

Make a general donation to “where help is needed most” or to one of our specific funds such as for Roadies or the Wellbeing Helpline.

All donations over $2 will be issued with an instant tax deductible receipt.



If you would like to leave Support Act a gift in your Will or should you decide to include Support Act as a beneficiary, we provide more information here.

You can also call our CEO Clive Miller on 1300 731 303.
