Our research programs are primarily funded by public and private donations, memorial donations, bequests and a salary donation scheme involving many employees of the power industry. Approximately 20% of our research is funded by competitive grants from government and non-government bodies. Seed funding to start new projects is only possible through donations.

Much of what we have achieved has been made possible by support from the community served by Royal North Shore Hospital and the Northern Sydney Local Health District.

The Bill Walsh Cancer Research Trust Fund is a registered charity administered by the Royal North Shore Hospital and as such, all donations over $2 are tax deductible and free of GST. Funds in this trust can only be used for cancer research and cannot be used for administrative purposes or for building refurbishment.
