Is fundraising your thing?
Please raise your voice...
We have a wonderful bunch of committed people who support us in our endeavours to raise money for life saving, heart and lung research.
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 directly towards supporting research, training and saving more lives. 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.
If you have a community fundraising idea we would love to hear from you.
