You’ll be joining a committed group of individuals, and community and advocacy groups who have chosen to support our researchers in their quest to better understand some of Australia’s most common, chronic diseases – diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis.
Our world-class researchers share the same wish as you – to “do something” that could potentially save lives. We can’t all be medical researchers, but we don’t need to be: if you can focus on the fundraising, they can focus on the science.
Every cent you give to SVI will help support our scientists in their areas of highest priority, whether that is keeping their research going as they inch closer to making that life-changing discovery, recruiting staff or students with the talent and drive to solve complex research problems, or funding the equipment and materials they need to succeed.
If you’re confident you can meet our guidelines, fill out our online Fundraising registration form. We'll review it and if you have “ticked all the boxes” we will send you an Authority to Fundraise letter. By law, you need this before you can start your fundraising activity.
Go forth and fundraise!
Once you have received the Authority to Fundraise letter, you're ready to go.
