Your donation makes a difference to the lives of our family, friends and the wider community – everyday. When you support The Hospital Research Foundation, 100% of your donation is directed to health and medical researchers to help deliver improved treatments, cures and patient care in our hospitals. How? Cost of administration expenses are paid for by surpluses made from our commercial activities such as property investment and our commercial lottery operations. This makes you as a donor, a 100% supporter. It also means we can provide even more funds to research and patient care each year. In the 2015/16 financial year, we received $2.4million in donations. With the support of our commercial lottery activities, we were able to fund $7.74 million in grants and research forward commitments in the same year.
The Hospital Research Foundation does not participate in face-to-face fundraising. Donations can be made via mail, telephone, online, attending one of our events or by visiting our head office at 60 Woodville Road, SA 5011. Tickets in the Hospital Research Home Lottery are sold via mail, online or by visiting our office or an accredited ticket outlet.
Purchasing tickets in the Hospital Research Home Lottery is not considered a donation and is not tax deductible. Whilst donations are vitally important to ongoing medical research and patient support activities, the funds to research generated via lotteries and other commercial activities leverage THRF’s ability to provide a consistent source of income to researchers undertaking lifesaving work.
For more information, our audited financials are published annually on our website here.
