WMRF is seeking funds to help more medical researchers in the Waikato region. We are very grateful to Bill and Joan Flower for their generous donation to our appeal. See Waikato Times articles below.

Our history: in the 1980s the Foundation raised $1 million from public subscription and through the support of Trust Waikato. This money was then placed into an investment portfolio in order to generate income. The interest from this investment portfolio is then used to fund the grants that it gives each year.

In 2012, a total of $136,963 was given out to 8 recipients from Waikato Hospital and the Waikato Clinical School, AgResearch, and the University of Waikato.

Each year the applications for research funding grow bigger. The Foundation needs your support in order to fill this growth. All contributions to the Foundation are tax deductible to the limits set by the Inland Revenue.

You can help.
