Corporate support




Philanthropic donations

The ANZCA Research Foundation welcomes philanthropic donations from corporate donors. Philanthropic donations that are gifts not associated with material or exclusive benefits do not attract Australian GST.


Donors giving $1000 or more will be appropriately acknowledged in the December issue of the ANZCA Bulletin, on the ANZCA Research Foundation pages of the ANZCA website, and at the foundation's booth at ANZCA's annual scientific meeting.


Corporate donors wishing to contribute $1000 or more per annum may be recognised as corporate members of the Patrons Program. Gifts of $5000 or more qualify the donor as a "president's patron". Further information about the Patrons Program is available here.


Corporate sponsorship

A unique positioning opportunity

Corporate sponsorship of the ANZCA Research Foundation is a unique means of communicating your organisation's commitment to supporting life-saving research and education in the fields of anaesthesia and pain medicine.


Sponsorship is an ideal way to add year-round corporate positioning to complement the power of existing ANZCA event sponsorships. All contributions support important research and education programs, which significantly improve patient outcomes.


A visible commitment to quality

Sponsors' contributions to the future quality of anaesthesia and pain medicine are clearly visible in the health sector through a range of online and offline communications, sponsor recognition and signage.


Tailored agreements can be developed to meet the needs of organisations seeking the benefits of association with the vital work of ANZCA and Faculty of Pain Medicine Fellows.


Sponsorships can be linked to priority research projects or education projects that have been approved by the rigorous selection process of ANZCA's Research Committee.
