Lasting Impact

1 in 20 children is born with a birth defect or genetic disease. It can happen to any child in any family.

Since 1958, our research has led to the introduction of new treatments and improved standards of care that have already saved thousands of children. You could help save many thousands more. Learn more about our history of impact.

By Supporting Research You Are the Solution

Our world-first ProCan program is transforming cancer diagnosis and treatment. 

Since we launched our gene therapy program, established 30 years ago thanks to Jeans for Genes, previously incurable children's genetic diseases are now curable. 

Together, we can beat children's genetic diseases.

Other Ways to Support

Gifts in Wills provide Children’s Medical Research Institute with approximately 27% of our philanthropic income and have helped transform big ideas into reality, such as our Eye Genetics Research Unit, which made genetic testing and treatment for many forms of inherited blindness possible.

Donations in your Will are invested in an endowment fund, ensuring financial security to the long-term benefit of the community by supporting our research in perpetuity.

A gift in your Will to CMRI is a gift that will forever positively impact the lives of future generations of Australian children.

Making Every Dollar Count

Your donation directly supports our research programs into cancer, genetic diseases, birth defects, and neurological conditions like epilepsy. We receive no guaranteed government funding. Our scientists rely on hard-won grants and community support to keep their research going. If the funding stops, so does the research. Your support helps transform discoveries into cures and treatments for children affected by serious conditions. You help make the 'incurable' curable.

82 cents from every dollar spent goes to research
