New grant round open!

We are pleased to announce the opening of our second public grant round focusing on discovery. The Discovery Fund is a grant program designed to support organisations seeking to find answers, answers that will provide the information and evidence needed to address significant health issues. Discovery Fund grants are here to support the brave, those asking questions and entering into the unknown. We know how South Australia compares on many different health indicators, but often we don’t know why or how to change this. These grants aim to assist in getting the evidence and…

The Foundation’s investment of over $230,000 will allow Dr Todd and her team to not only…
