Sponsors

The Anindilyakwa Land Council is a major partner and sponsor of the MJD Foundation. The ALC committed the initial $1,000,000 in funding to the MJDF research fund in 2009 demonstrating incredible leadership in investing in research for the benefit of Indigenous Australians living with Machado Joseph Disease from Groote Eylandt archipelago. Following the 2015 International MJD Conference hosted in Australia, the ALC committed an additional $1,000,000.

The Telstra Foundation is a proud sponsor of the MJD Foundation's research and community services projects and programs. Without their generous support the 2019 International MJD Research Conference would not be possible. In addition to support with this conference, Telstra Foundation provided financial support to the MJD Foundation over 5 years from 2013 to roll out the MJDF's iPad program and support a PhD on Communication and MJD. The Telstra Foundation's work with the MJDF is featured in this video.


The Groote Eylandt Aboriginal Trust (GEAT) became sponsors of the MJDF in 2013 and provided $40,000 in funding towards the Zebra Fish MJD Treatment research in Sydney, Australia. GEAT has generously sponsored the 2019 Conference to support researchers from Groote Eylandt to attend.

GEAT also sponsors the MJDF by providing office space in Angurugu, Groote Eylandt, Australia.
