ACNC Registered Charity

Help us protect the rights of people born with intersex variations!

Unlike a range of generalist “LGBTI” organisations that lack specific expertise, Intersex Human Rights Australia receives no funding from the federal government, and only limited project funding from the Victorian state government. We receive no funding from clinical or human rights institutions. Our voice is uniquely our own, but it remains rarely heard.

Since the end of 2016 we have benefitted from foreign philanthropic funding to enable us to pay for two part-time staff positions. We have funding for one year from the Victorian government to pay for an administration worker. These roles have transformed our organisation, helping us to engage in systemic advocacy, and build evidence, community, and education and information resources – but these roles remain precarious and fixed term. We currently seek funding to support a junior/early career lawyer position and a communications person, and to extend funding for our administration worker. Please consider supporting Intersex Human Rights Australia!

We are recognised by the Australian Taxation Office as a charity and Public Benevolent Institution. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. Read our Governance page.

We have received Equivalency Determination status from TechSoup/NGO Source, valid through to 30 June 2020.

Thank you for considering a donation to Intersex Human Rights Australia.

Donate via GiveOut

During 2020 we are taking part in an LGBTIQ+ fundraising initiative called GiveOut Day. GiveOut Day has provided us with an online platform to raise funds towards Intersex Human Rights Australia’s general operating expenses. GiveOut Day has initiated this fundraising scheme because only a tiny fraction of grants each year are explicitly given to LGBTIQ+ projects, and an even smaller percentage of that funding ever reaches intersex projects and initiatives.

This is an opportunity for you and your friends and family to give generously and keep IHRA operating, because your donation will be doubled by the GiveOut Day initiative up to the first $1000! As well as raising funds, we have chosen to take part in GiveOut day to raise awareness for intersex voices amongst organisations that do work for LGBTIQ+ communities. The link below will take you to our GiveOut donation page. Please share it far and wide. Thankyou for donating to IHRA!

Donations made via GiveOut can be made via credit card. Donate at
