The Friends of the Mater Foundation is a charitable trust, established in late June 1999.
The Foundation supports the work of the Mater Hospital by raising funds through pledged donations. Donors are known as Friends of the Mater and their annual tax deductible donations are directed towards the growth of a capital fund. The return on the invested funds is made available each year to the Mater in the form of grants for new technology, equipment, clinical research projects, education and teaching programs as well as academic appointments in medical and surgical oncology.
To date the Foundation has provided the Hospital with over $5 million. The Trustee of the Foundation is Friends of the Mater Limited.
