Despite all the amazing progress being made towards improving health outcomes in today’s society there’s a more pressing need for medical research than ever. Chronic disease rates are mostly soaring due to factors like ageing and physical inactivity. Cancer, stroke, heart attack, asthma, diabetes, mental health, dementia and more … all are rising.

Medical research funding needs to rise too, so we’d ask you to give what you can, when you can. This page tells you ‘how’ you can, because there are many ways to support HMRI research.

You can give a single donation or regular monthly contribution, host or attend a fundraising event, leave a bequest or establish a fund in memory of a loved one. Occasionally you might receive a mail or email appeal.

An important message regarding donations to HMRI

HMRI would like to advise that due to isolation restrictions and safety measures for our teams we will be experiencing delays in the processing of donations received via Australia Post after Monday, 23rd March. 

It is anticipated that it may take several weeks for these donations to be processed and receipting to be issued.  We are still receiving and processing the mail and will be responding as quickly as we can with reduced manpower and additional safety measures in place.   

All on-line donations will be processed normally.

We thank you for your patience and for your generosity.  It is very much appreciated by us here at HMRI.

 Where your support goes
  • It seed-funds inspiring new research projects
  • It helps test and develop new devices

Every donation contributes to better health for the community – and all donations $2 or more are tax deductible.
