Here at the Lions Medical Research Foundation, we are a community based, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to long term funding for medical research to improve the standard of health for all Australians and people throughout the world. When you choose to donate to our organisation, you will be helping to fund the research aimed at finding a cure for life-threatening diseases and other medical issues, thus giving hope to those in need.
Lions Medical Research Foundation
This research has contributed to a greater understanding of diseases, their causes and treatments, and improved methods of treatment and prevention.
Lions Medical Research Foundation adheres to the objectives and ethics of Lions Clubs International on behalf of its constituent members, the Lions Clubs of Queensland and Northern NSW. Lions Medical Research Foundation is outcomes-focused, responsive to community needs and committed to excellence in all activities.
Fundraising for medical research
Our foundation requires continuous financial support to sustain its mission, and partnerships are the key to all fundraising undertaken. Lions Clubs across Queensland and Northern NSW are vital to our success and we aim to work in partnership with these clubs at all times. Many clubs work closely with us, providing support through regular fundraising activities in their districts, or by contributing to annual appeals, such as Spring for Research.
We also form external partnerships with a range of companies and individuals who can assist with fundraising. The Royal on the Park is one such example. In the past, the hotel has been the venue for the Personality Quest Grand Final each year, but despite the cancellation of the Quest, the hotel continues to support our foundation through donation boxes placed around the hotel and via sales of the Albert and Alice Teddy Bears. Whenever our foundation is supported, strong partnerships are at its core. We thank all our supporters and partners who continue to work with us.
There are many other ways to assist such as fashion parades, sausage sizzles or movie nights. Organising your own fundraiser is not only a lot of fun, but it's a great way to work in the community and extremely rewarding. If you're passionate about raising money for medical research, then we'd love to hear from you.
