Each Year Banksia has a target to raise between $100,000 to $150,000 from public and business support, to be able to maximise the services available, to children and adults of all ages, who have been diagnosed with a progressive terminal illness and are living at home within the council areas of Banyule, Whittlesea and Nillumbik.

Arden Crescent Concert Series
These concerts are held to raise money for community causes of which Banksia has been fortunate to have been chosen as one for many years. Fantastic artists performing for small entry fees to assist others.
Thank you for the support of Rotary Clubs in the north east suburbs, namely: Eltham, Diamond Creek, Heidelberg, Whittlesea, Bundoora and Rosanna for supporting the syringe driver appeal. In particular, Mr. Gordon Birch of the Rotary Club of Eltham, who was influential in attracting such support, in loving memory of his wife Marlene.
We welcome any champions of our cause, like Gordon displayed for Banksia, who have ideas and energy, to help Banksia create more awareness, of the free 24 hour services.

Also acknowledging the sponsorship of two syringe drivers by Freemasons Victoria Headquarters and the Plenty Valley Lodge for pain management control to be used by members of our community.
We acknowledge the Plenty Valley Lodge and their terrific support to our Street Stall Volunteers in transport and setting up. We are very appreciative of the wonderful ongoing support for many years by the members of the Masters Comets No. 6 Lodge and the Preston and Northcote Lodge.
Banksia has acknowledged the wonderful support of volunteer and member of the Preston Northcote Lodge Mr. Alby Collis who died in December 2010, with a plaque strategically placed in the Volunteer area.
