Our Supporter Promise
Garvan scientists couldn’t complete their research without the incredible support of people in the community. We value each and every one of our supporters, whether they’re a donor, volunteer, fundraiser or leave a gift in their Wills. Your trust is important to us, and that’s why we make this promise to you.
Communicating with you

- We will give you the choice of when and how we communicate with you – and you can change your mind at any time
- We will provide accurate, clear, consistent and honest information
- We will always respond to your queries promptly and professionally
- We will steward your donations responsibly, and use them to have the greatest impact on medical research
- We will share with you how your support is helping
