The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) Group is proud to support hospitals and medical research institutes within the Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN), including the Royal Adelaide Hospital, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital and SA Pathology.
While CALHN is undergoing internal restructuring, we can confirm our ongoing support of our researchers, clinicians and programs which operate out of any CALHN sites to support vital medical research and improved patient care.
For every $1 donated through THRF and its charitable affiliates, we provide over $4 in grants to research and patient care. This is because our administration costs are covered by our commercial business activities (such as our lottery program), which also boosts our funds to research and patient care each year. Our donors feel proud knowing their donation makes an even bigger impact to the health and wellbeing of your community.
