Fundraising can be fun and a rewarding team building exercise, while raising money for Garvan. 

 You can hold your own event or participate in an existing event that raises vital funds to support Garvan's medical research in finding cures and treatments for many of the world’s major diseases. You can also set up your own personal fundraising page to encourage friends and family to support your cause.

Garvan researchers work very hard and as a result attain funding through competitive Government grants. However, these grants do not cover the full cost of research. In fact, for every $1 received by Garvan in grants, we must raise another $0.70 to fully achieve the potential of our research. That is why the fund raising efforts of the community are so vital.

We would like to thank you for thinking about raising funds for the Garvan Institute of Medical Research. We are very grateful to the many individuals, community groups, organisations and companies that support Garvan's vital research by hosting external events or activities to raise funds for medical research.
