Inspiring Health
Transforming Care

The Ingham Institute is a not-for-profit organisation. Thanks to the support and generosity of community members, we can continue our vital work improving and saving lives.

Any contribution, big or small, makes an incredible impact. The team here at Ingham Institute are very grateful to anyone who shares the vision for medical advancements for the health and wellbeing of society.

Throughout the year we both hold and participate in many events that you, your family, friends and workplace can get involved in. From charity golf days, ladies luncheons and fun runs, to research seminars and symposiums. And the best part – 100% of funds raised go towards world-class community-driven medical research.
