As a longtime ME/CFS sufferer I believe OMF holds the best hope for viable treatments and a possible cure. Even if there is no cure in my lifetime I feel good supporting those who come after. I know I'm doing the right thing to leave this legacy.

Open Medicine Foundation has some of the most brilliant research minds in the Scientific community.

Perhaps you have considered a charitable legacy to continue your philanthropy beyond your lifetime, to have your family remembered, and your philanthropy woven into the lives of others. With a legacy gift, you can.

We invite you to make your philanthropy endure through a planned gift to Open Medicine Foundation Australia and join the Healthy Futures Society.


The Healthy Futures Society was established to recognise and thank those individuals who have identified Open Medicine Foundation Australia as the best partner in the creation of a personal legacy through a planned gift. The Healthy Futures Society is our way of acknowledging their commitment to the future of Open Medicine Foundation Australia today.

Gifts of all sizes are appreciated, and there are several ways to structure your gift.

Membership in the Healthy Futures Society serves as an example for others to follow, though if you prefer, we honour any requests for anonymity.

OMF Australia accepts donations of Cryptocurrencies

Make the most of your donation by donating your Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies directly to OMF Australia rather than selling and donating the after-tax proceeds.

  • Your tax deduction will be equal to the fair market value of the donated cryptocurrency (as determined by a qualified appraisal).
  • Donors should consult with a tax advisor for properly recording this donation on a personal tax return.

OMF Australia can accept cryptocurrency donations of any amount. 

Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. This makes Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support your favorite cause.
