MDF Australia greatly appreciates the generous and continuing support given by the following corporations.
Royal Philips is a diversified health and well-being company, focused on improving people’s lives through meaningful innovation in the areas of Healthcare, Consumer Lifestyle and Lighting. The company is a leader in cardiac care, acute care and home healthcare, energy efficient lighting solutions and new lighting applications, as well as male shaving and grooming and oral healthcare. Philips are proud to partner with the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation and support their commitment to the people and families whose lives are affected by neuromuscular disorders.

Clayton Utz is a leading Australian law firm. Clayton Utz supports MDF Australia through its pro bono program, which provides legal services for low income and disadvantaged people, and for the not-for-profit organisations which support them. Clayton Utz is serious about pro bono best practice. It was the first large Australian law firm to establish an in-house pro bono practice; the first to appoint a full-time pro bono partner; and the first to sign the National Pro Bono Target for law firms. In 2015, Clayton Utz became the first law firm in Australia to provide 500,000 hours of pro bono assistance (and counting).
The Clayton Utz Foundation provides financial support to charities that have a link to the firm – through its pro bono practice, Community Connect program or the volunteering commitment made by individual partners and employees. Since its establishment, the Foundation has made over $10 million in grants.

While the incidence of each form of muscular dystrophy is rare, when all forms are grouped together the number of Australians living with these conditions is shockingly high. It is estimated that more than 20,000 Australian’s have some form of neuromuscular disease.
The Muscular Dystrophy Foundation Australia welcomes enquiries from businesses interested in pursuing a mutually beneficial partnership, that aligns with our mission of providing all Australians living with neuromuscular disease with help for today and tomorrow.
