How does it work?

Our administration expenses are met by a separate charitable fund. When you make a gift to research, your money supports research. We’re a registered charity (#CC22674) under the Charities Act 2005 so ask for tax advice to claim tax benefits for your donation.

Will my money support good work?

Every application for funds goes through a strict process of consideration of its medical and scientific importance by a committee of experienced researchers – professors, doctors and lecturers both in NZ and around the world. The decision to fund is not made lightly.
