Own a part of SAHMRI and help save lives

What if you could own a piece of Adelaide’s most famous building, and be helping to save lives at the same time?

Well – you can, by sponsoring one of the SAHMRI ‘Cheesegrater’s’ signature triangular windows.

You can dedicate your virtual window with a personal tribute or message of hope for a healthier future, and your sponsorship donation will go directly to supporting the life-changing research happening inside the Cheesegrater every day.

As well as your dedicated virtual window, you will be invited to exclusive Windows of Hope sponsor events inside the Cheesegrater, where you’ll hear directly from the people whose research your generosity is supporting. Plus, you’ll receive regular updates about progress being made at SAHMRI and an official certificate of thank you for your commitment.

SAHMRI – South Australia’s independent, not-for-profit health and medical research institute – opened just nine years ago, but already has delivered wide-ranging and lasting improvements for all of our health and wellbeing.

SAHMRI is now Australia’s national centre for fighting acute lymphoblastic leukaemia – the most common non-traumatic cause of death for Australian children under five years old.

SAHMRI is pioneering a world-first intervention that is reducing the number of babies who are born prematurely.

SAHMRI researchers have patented a world-first blood test that promises to unlock secrets to healthy ageing.

And SAHMRI’s Wardliparingga Aboriginal Health Equity Unit has laid the foundations for how to conduct culturally safe and responsible medical research that is informed and directed by Indigenous communities.

That’s just a brief snapshot of how SAHMRI has improved health and heath care in less than a decade. Just imagine what more we can achieve together over the next 10 years with support from people like our Windows of Hope sponsors.

While SAHMRI and its researchers have a proud record of earning competitive grants from national funding bodies, philanthropic donations are essential to drive innovations that accelerate what is usually a slow and steady process of research.

Only donations from the community can provide funding for projects that test a researcher’s intuitive hunch which could unlock the door to discovery. Only donations from the community can fill the funding gap to sustain talented early and mid-career researchers while they establish themselves in the highly competitive world of medical research. Only donations from the community can help secure the cutting-edge technology that’s essential for world-leading research.

Your window sponsorship will make a difference you can see, but scarcely imagine. And the benefits will be there for us all to enjoy.
