Make a major gift

​One in four Australians will be will be directly affected by diseases of the brain and mind. That’s why your support to brain research is so critical.

Over the years, the Florey has benefitted from the support of philanthropists that have helped us achieve breakthroughs that benefit the community.

Leaving a gift in your will to the Florey or giving a major gift (donations of $10,000 and above), will enable us to accelerate towards pioneering research and ensure there is no delay in our researchers discovering interventions for the prevention and cure of brain disease.  

Major gifts

A major gift is a significant financial contribution that can make a remarkable difference to our work, as they are often donation amounts that can cover a significant proportion – if not all - of the costs for projects of scale and complexity. Major gifts received for a project are a valuable leverage for seeking other sources of funding. You may wish to direct your major gift to specific research areas or, you may also authorise our Director to decide its use for areas of greatest need. We receive major gifts in different ways, through your private ancillary fund, as a personal gift, as a corporate donation or through a trust or foundation.

If you would like to discuss or give a major gift to the Florey, please contact Elouise Holmes, Head of Major Gifts and Philanthropy, at 03 8344 0678.
