Help future generations through the power of medical research

Support future generations

Since 2005, GMRF has been dedicated to solving major health problems that affect veterans, their families, and our communities. Our focus is on areas of significant clinical and social need, investigating the issues and illnesses where only few options currently exist.

Make a lasting difference

Leaving a gift in Will means you are making a lasting difference to people with serious illness. Each year gifts in Will, made by kind people in the community, help advance the life changing medical research underway at GMRF.

Your gift not only allows us to conduct research to benefit future generations, it also allows us to support the people in urgent need of support right now through other non-research based programs.

Frequently asked questions

Stories from Our Future Discovery Partners


In 2013, Jane’s life was turned upside down when she was diagnosed with a rare blood condition often associated with cancer. For the past seven years, Jane has received regular treatment at Greenslopes Private Hospital. It was there she saw the power of medical research in action.

“Without research, I would be a lot worse off than I am. That’s what I am hoping for when I donate to GMRF – that I am helping progress current and future research.”

Jane hopes for the future. And with two adult children, she also hopes for grandkids! She became a Future Discovery Partner to help create a future where their lives aren’t impacted by illness the way hers is.


Bob is passionate about veteran health. He spent over three decades in the military, rising from Private to Major and serving Australia across the world.

Bob’s first wife Bernadette, who was also a veteran, passed away from vascular illness in early 2018. It was through Bernadette’s treatment at Greenslopes Private Hospital the couple found out about GMRF’s research for veterans and the wider community.

“While she was in hospital she read up on GMRF. The work in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) added more fuel to the flame of our interest. We saw that GMRF took a whole-body approach and focussed on creating real solutions.”

“We made sure to look after our family first, then included a gift in our Will to GMRF. We know this will go to improve the health of veterans, and anyone else that can be helped by this research.”
