Extraordinary opportunities to go above and beyond

RBWH Foundation research and patient care grants

The RBWH Foundation is proud to help incubate and foster some of the most brilliant medical minds in Australia, based at Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital (RBWH), Redcliffe Hospital, The Surgical, Treatment and Rehabilitation Service (STARS) and Institutes on the Herston Health Precinct. 

It is our honour to support early career researchers, as well as those well established in their field of discovery.

This support has led to significant breakthroughs in medical knowledge and improvements in patient outcomes.

We are grateful to the philanthropic individuals, families and organisations who partner with us through their connection with causes that truly make a difference.

RBWH Foundation Grants

RBWH Foundation Grant Round 1

RBWH Foundation Grants are made possible through the extraordinary power of giving.

RBWH Foundation Grants are intended to provide financial support for RBWH, STARS and Institutes on the Herston Health Precinct to undertake projects (including research) that improve patient outcomes at RBWH and STARS. We seek applications for projects/initiatives of up to $50,000.

The purpose of the RBWH Foundation is to save lives through the extraordinary power of giving. Our mission is that together, we advance patient care and life-saving research.

“When we're standing by someone's bedside in the hospital, and we're doing something that we didn't do last year .. we look back at the donations that people have given to Foundations like the RBWH Foundation and know where that’s all started.”
