Supporters

We are delighted to discuss ways in which we can work with you to support our science. We are grateful to our philanthropic partners, and we are dedicated to treating all our friends and supporters with the highest care and respect.

Our commitment to you

We will acknowledge your gift quickly and will work with you to ensure your gift is used the way you would like.

If you have made a targeted donation and our research priorities change, we will make sure we talk to you, or your representative, to ensure your gift continues to work hard within our laboratories.

When you have given permission for us to use a donation in the research area of greatest need, we will ensure funds are used carefully and for the benefit of human health.

Our Donors

During 2017, the pace and potential of live saving research has vastly accelerated at the Florey. Contributions by generous benefactors provide essential support, alongside government grants. Backing from donors, corporations, trusts and foundations, and organisations act as a catalyst for our scientists, funding new ideas and innovations as they emerge - driving our ability to chase discoveries and to improve lives. We are grateful for the generous investment from all of our supporters in our relentless pursuit to improve the prevention, detection and treatment of brain diseases and mind disorders. Listed below are donors who have contributed $100 or more in 2017.
