You're invited to the 2nd Heart & Lung Nurses Conference - 2018

Community Fundraising

We have a wonderful bunch of committed people who support us in our endeavours to raise money for life saving, heart and lung research. Read the stories below, to find out how much fun you can have, organising community events that help to make a difference!

As we receive no government funding, we rely solely on the donations of our supporters, both private and corporate, as well as our community fundraisers.

These community fundraisers have together raised in excess of  $250,000 for The Baird Institute, through their various fundraising activities and events: from participation in fun runs, variety shows, country dances, cocktail parties, to selling items they have personally made.

The help of these volunteers means that we keep fundraising costs to a minimum and the money raised can go straight to our surgeons for their research and training.  This has made an enormous difference to the work we do and has enabled us to improve not only the survival rates of patients facing heart and lung surgery but also the care of these patients pre and post-surgery.  We are so very appreciative for all that they do for us.
