Patron’s Program

“Like many families around Australia we have been touched by spinal cord injury. I am proud to be the philanthropic Patron of the Spinal Research Institute as I share their passion to improve health outcomes and the quality of life for people affected by spinal cord injury.A gift to the Spinal Research Institute Patron’s Program, no matter how small, can effect big shifts in the lives of those with spinal cord injury who are often young at the time of injury (17-25 years).Your gift will help advance research outcomes, whether by supporting researchers to work in this field more collaboratively, providing talented young researchers with travel grants and mentoring programs, or engaging people with spinal cord injury to co-create and co-design research trials to achieve better health outcomes. These changes and improvements to research will create impact for years to come.

Philanthropy has the power to start making these changes now. I encourage you to join the Spinal Research Institute Patron’s Program and add your voice to this very worthy disability space.”
