Garvan thanks volunteers for their support and commitment

Garvan has hosted a festive lunch for its volunteers, thanking them for their support and commitment throughout 2015.

Some of Garvan's very valuable volunteers

07 December 2015

Volunteers were joined by staff from the Garvan Research Foundation for a lunch celebrating the year that was. They enjoyed presentations from each Foundation department (communications, corporate partnerships, philanthropy and supporter engagement and care), followed by an informative genomics presentation from Garvan’s Chief Scientific Officer, Dr Marie Dziadek.

Garvan is incredibly fortunate to have a generous team of about 45 volunteers who donate their time and talent to helping Garvan operate. Each year, our volunteers save the Foundation tens of thousands of dollars in administrative costs.

Every day, at least one volunteer assists the Garvan Research Foundation by processing donations, data entry and analysis, opening mail, packing envelopes and assisting with seminars and public events.

Thank you all!
