About Garvan Research Foundation

Garvan Research Foundation Logo


The Garvan Research Foundation was established in 1981 to provide fundraising support to the Institute’s medical research programs. The Foundation has successfully grown from a fundraising base of $110,000 in its first year to almost $50 million in 2016.

In addition to its fundraising activities, the Foundation’s activities have since expanded to support the Institute with a Public Engagement Program. This initiative aims to increase understanding of the need for and importance of Garvan’s medical research across the broader community.
