Big Trivia

What is Big Trivia?

We created Big Trivia to help people celebrate Brain Awareness Week and raise money for research. Events are a great chance to support a good cause with friends and family, but they can sometimes be a hassle to organise. We’ve made things easier by putting together everything you need to host your own brain-inspired fundraiser. The premise is simple:

  1. Contact our office online or by calling 1300 886 660 to discuss getting a trivia pack.
  2. We will send you all the digital or physical resources you need for the event.
  3. Invite your friends and enjoy a fun night of trivia!

Once the event is done, we will take care of all the receipting and donation processing for you.

We initially launched Big Trivia for Brain Awareness Week in 2017, with events being held throughout Australia. These were filled with brilliant competitive team spirit by all involved. The Elk and Pea Restaurant in Canberra had over 80 people competing with amazing food, prizes and fundraising. A special thank you to Sophia and Leeroy Peterson for hosting such an amazing event, and for the significant funds that they raised.

Following a successful first year, we have continued to support these trivia nights. After all, there’s no better way to raise money for brain research than by challenging your brain!

Thank you to Aspen and Allergan for their support, and to PR Consultant Kate Dorrell for her pro-bono time and effort in helping create the original concept with us and getting it to fruition. 

Brain FoundationThe Brain Foundation is the largest, independent funder of brain and spinal injury research in Australia. We believe research is the pathway to recovery.
