Donating to Penington Institute helps save lives.

It’s estimated that 585,000 people around the world – including more than 2,000 Australians – died from drug use in 2017.

Problematic drug use often has a ripple effect that is felt by families and communities for years.

We work tirelessly to address these harms. But we can’t do it on our own.

Every dollar we receive from donors like you makes a difference.

Your support helps us stay at the forefront of research, train workers to recognise and respond to opioid overdoses, and to grow International Overdose Awareness Day – among other important work.

Your support helps us tackle the impacts of problematic drug use.

Together, we can make change for the better – and ensure the health and safety of our people and communities.

It’s thanks to our partners and supporters that we make change happen.

We help improve access to drug treatment. We train workforces to safely manage drug use and respond to overdoses. We issue Australia’s Annual Overdose Report, the most authoritative source of information about overdose deaths in the nation. We convene International Overdose Awareness Day, a global movement to remember those we’ve lost and end the stigma that surrounds drug use.

We are making great progress. But there’s always more to do – and we can’t succeed without your help.

That’s why your support means so much.

Making a tax-deductible donation to Penington Institute takes only a few mouse clicks.

And every dollar goes to the wide-ranging work we do to reduce the impacts of problematic drug use.
