Our Funding Opportunities
Charlies Foundation for Research is the primary fundraising partner for research conducted at Sir Charles Gairdner and Osborne Park Hospitals. Thanks to our generous donors, we are funding more than $1 million of research and other projects all based in right here in WA.
The funding for the research grants is provided through a series of peer reviewed grant rounds, including Major, Discovery (formally known as ‘mid-range’) and Bright Idea tiers.
Major Grants – of up to $100,000 each
Discovery Grants – of up to $30,000 each
Bright Ideas Grants – of up to $5,000 each
The Foundation’s Seed Funding approach supports translational research, with the most potential to improve patient care and outcomes. With a particular focus on supporting new research, and young researchers, their grants enable highly promising projects to gather the preliminary data and momentum they need to secure significant grants from peak bodies.
