In 2018 The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) had our greatest impact yet!
We were able to invest over $24 million into world leading medical research and patient care initiatives to save lives! This includes an allocation to future research projects that will make a lifesaving difference in the community.
This has all been made possible due to the generosity of our donors and supporters of the Hospital Research Home Lottery. Thank you!
“This incredible support has helped us fund over 40 areas of research and patient care,” said Paul Flynn, Chief Executive Officer of THRF.
“There is not a single South Australian who hasn’t seen a loved one battle illness or disease. That is why we have expanded our support across all hospitals and across a range of diseases and illnesses to make a difference in our community.”
An overview of this amazing impact, made possible thanks to our supporters, can be viewed in our 2018 Impact Report.
Some highlights include:
“Thank you to our donors and Lottery supporters for helping us progress these lifesaving projects. It was a huge year, but there’s still so much to be done,” Paul said.
“At THRF, for every dollar donated, five dollars goes into lifesaving research and patient care. This is because our administration costs are covered by our commercial business activities like our Lottery program, which also boosts our funds to research and patient care.
“Donors can feel proud knowing their donation has made an even bigger difference to the health of their community.”
