About us


Each year institutions, government agencies and philanthropic entities look to invest in research, equipment, programs and services.

Eastern Health Foundation endeavour to keep staff informed of upcoming external grant opportunities available to Eastern Health, and support them through the application and management process.

The following information is intended for Eastern Health staff only.


The calendar of external grant opportunities lists trusts and foundations that specify submission through a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) organisation or Public Benevolent Institution (PBI).

These granting bodies require Eastern Health to coordinate and submit the application on behalf of the applicant.

Please note, there is no guarantee that applications will be successful.

Before you apply

Interested applicants are advised to access the relevant trust or foundation website to best ascertain eligibility for available funding and discuss opportunities with their head of Department, Eastern Health Foundation and Office of Research and Ethics accordingly.

Individual applications

It should be noted that the Office of Research and Ethics and the Foundation would also welcome the opportunity to assist Eastern Health staff to apply for individual investigator grants.

If you would like support from Eastern Health with your individual application, please contact David Taylor, Director of Research and University Relations on david.taylor@easternhealth.org.au or telephone 9894 9511.
