Turning Beliefs into Breakthroughs - together

Without your support, brilliant ideas and potential breakthroughs would simply remain unexplored.

Please donate online today.

Alternatively, contact us at (07) 3394 7284 if you would prefer to donate over the phone using credit card details.

Regular Giving

The loyalty of our Regular Givers allows us to reach for even higher goals, safe inthe knowledge that you are with us on the journey of medical discovery.

Mrs Amy Throssell - GMRF Regular Giver

Some advice from Mrs Amy Throssell, one of GMRF's longest-standing Regular Givers:

“I think that direct debit is the way to go. You have no letters, no cheques and you get a receipt at the end of the financial year. That’s all you do. It’s easier and it saves the charity time too. It really is so easy for a donor. Even if it’s $10 a month the doctors will get to know more because of it".

If you would like to learn how you can become a Regular Giver please contact the GMRF team at (07) 3394 7284 or enquiries.gmrf@ramsayhealth.com.au

Provide in-kind support

There are many different ways that you can support GMRF’s medical research. One great way is through providing in-kind goods and services. The funds that we save by receiving this support can then be redirected into the vital research happening in our labs.

In the past, we have received in-kind gifts such as graphic design work, IT support, and fundraising prizes.

If you would like to support GMRF through in-kind goods or services, please contact Sharon Woods (GMRF Partnership & Development Manager) at (07) 3394 7284 or woodsharon@ramsayhealth.com.au.

 

 

We would like to say a big “thank you” to all our current in-kind supporters including: 

  • Greenslopes Private Hospital
  • Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology
  • Fang Design
  • Kenneth Hilton Designs

In-kind supporter profile: Mateship for PTSD sufferers

John Hudson (Fang Design) and Kenneth Hilton are both independent graphic designers who were inspired to support GMRF when they learnt about our PTSD Initiative.

Kenneth worked tirelessly to design an extensive infographic which enforces the global impact of PTSD while John has worked closely with our team to design brochures, posters and presentations.

Together, they have provided us with the resources needed to highlight the devastating impact of PTSD.

Please visit our PTSD Initiative page to see their work and learn more about our efforts to better inform prevention and treatment for PTSD.

Request in memoriam envelopes

Remembrance through Research

The loss of a family member or close friend is one of the most difficult experiences any of us go through. During this hard time, many people chose to make a donation to a charity known to be favoured by their loved one during their lifetime.

How in memoriam giving works

We have envelopes available specifically for in memoriam giving which we are happy to send to you, upon request. You can fill out the form below and we will arrange for the envelopes to be delivered to the venue of the funeral service.

Your family and friends can return the envelopes to you (or your funeral director) after the service. Alternatively, as all our envelopes are reply paid, mourners may take the envelopes home and return them to the Foundation in their own time.

On our receipt of the memorial gifts, a letter of thanks (which includes a tax receipt for donations of $2 or more) will be forwarded to each donor. The bereaved will also receive a letter advising them of the names of those who have donated in memory of their loved ones. Please note that we do not mention the amount of the donations sent to us, unless otherwise directed.

The suggestion that people might prefer to donate is often best included in the funeral notice in the newspaper. Many notices say: ‘No flowers by request. In Lieu donations made to the Gallipoli Medical Research Foundation would be appreciated. Envelopes will be available at the service.’  The decision on whether to include this information in the funeral notice is completely up to you.

Remembrance through research - a donor story

Many families spend long stints in hospital when a loved one is unwell; this was the case for one of our dear supporters when her late husband was ill. During this time, despite the heartache she experienced, she came to deeply appreciate the care he received from the medical community. Even more, she now truly understands the need for more funds to be invested in vital medical research.

On Valentine’s Day 2014, this lady decided she wanted to remember her husband by donating to GMRF in his memory. She wanted to see his name added to our Discovery Partner honour board with the other supporters who have joined us on the journey of medical discovery.

She looks forward to seeing his name on the relaunched Discovery Partner board in April.
