Together, as part of The Hospital Research Foundation Group, we raised $520,517 to improve healthcare and support services in our community.

On Thursday 1 June, our community came together over 12 hours to raise essential funds to change lives and bring hope to stroke survivors and their families across Australia!  

Throughout Giving Day, our staff, volunteers and ambassadors joined in on the fun at our Woodville office by jumping on the phones to call on their friends, family, colleagues and our community to join the fight against disease and illness, including stroke. 

Thanks to a generous group of supporters, we were able to double every donation!

As part of the Group, we had the incredible opportunity to raise much needed funds for our support services and ground-breaking research.

Here are just some of the projects we can support, thanks to you! 

  • Essential clinical trials for stroke treatments in the emergency stage 
  • Investigating the impact of pet therapy to improve the wellbeing of stroke patients in hospital 
  • Trialing new ‘screen, clean, hydrate’ protocols in acute stroke units to improve dysphagia (impaired swallowing) and other adverse outcomes 
  • And much more! 

Thanks to your support and those of our gift-matchers, we can continue to support our services and life-changing research after we smashed our target of $450,000 and raised 115% of our goal, receiving 1836 donations! 

“Thank you to all of our supporters, volunteers and businesses that partnered with us. It’s been a magnificent day and we are making a brilliant impact in South Australia,” CEO Paul Flynn said on the day. 

It’s incredible what we can achieve when we work together! Thank you for your support on Giving Day.
