The building of the TRI concept was funded in part by the Australian and Queensland Governments, in conjunction with a large donation from The Atlantic Philanthropies, Queensland University of Technology and The University of Queensland. While this funding built a state of art facility, there are many opportunities to support and fund the research and provide core scientific services to our researchers. To ensure that scientific breakthroughs aren’t lost due to lack of funding, it is important that our research teams have access to funds when needed to progress their research.
Monetary donations allow TRI to distribute funds to the most needed areas, in particular important research areas which aren’t widely marketed or media driven. All donations made to the TRI Foundation are tax deductible via the My Cause website and a receipt will be provided for tax purposes. We thank you in advance for assisting us financially in bringing cures and treatments to the community.
Leave a legacy by bequeathing a donation from your last will & testament. You could fund a research program which could lead to a treatment or cure, sponsor a PhD student as they start their career in health science or purchase new equipment to get an important project off the ground. We can work with you to structure a specific program which will ensure the funds are utilized to create a legacy for yourself or a loved one.
