It's a farsighted outlook on life: we all want the next generation to live happier & healthier lives. It’s why we work hard and try to stay healthy: to make a better world for everyone, including our friends and families.
It’s why our dedicated team at Garvan are working so hard to build a future where everyone can enjoy longer, healthier lives. Our purpose is to make discoveries to predict, prevent and treat disease so that people can live without suffering and enjoy life to the fullest.
We hope that taking care of future generations is also in your DNA.
Help us transform the health & wellbeing of future generations
At Garvan, we have 70 research groups working on over 50 diseases. The progress they make every day is incredible, and we want to ensure this life-saving research continues.
A guaranteed way to support our research is by leaving a gift in your Will to Garvan.
Your loved ones will always come first, we understand that. All that we ask is that, after you have made provision for them in your Will, you consider a gift to support Garvan’s life-saving work. Whatever you can give, however big or small, will be used to change lives.
“I decided to become a Garvan Partner for the Future as a tribute to my brother.”
"Me and my big brother Peter were always close. We were both diagnosed with prostate cancer. I was diagnosed early and was eligible for radioactive brachytherapy seed implants, which have kept my cancer in check. Peter wasn’t as lucky; his cancer was advanced by the time it was detected.
"Surgery could only remove part of the tumour. Secondary cancers were found throughout his body and Peter passed away within a year of his diagnosis. “I went on a tour of Garvan and learned about the research into personalised medicine, getting chemotherapy right so it doesn’t knock the hell out of you. I thought that was very worthwhile.”
"I don’t want anyone else to lose someone close to them in the same way. Becoming a Garvan Partner for the Future is my tribute to Peter."
- Terry Gallagher, Garvan Partner for the Future
William is a passionate supporter and recently reached an important milestone: his 103rd birthday! “Statistics show that people are living longer, thanks to medical research. By remembering Garvan in my Will, I feel I am making a contribution to the increasing longevity of my fellow man.”
Gabriel and Joan Farago
“We asked ourselves, what could possibly be more important than supporting cutting-edge medical research which will benefit generations to come? The answer was obvious and we became Garvan bequestors.”
