Perkins Visionary Partnerships

Are you passionate about driving discovery and inspiring Western Australia’s brightest minds to pursue interests in medical science?

Thanks to the generous support of the community, Perkins researchers are working hard to drive discoveries, provide answers, and give hope.

However, the inequity of national medical research grants distribution sees Western Australia significantly impacted. Only one in every ten grants is successful nationally. Western Australia accounts for an even smaller percentage of only 3%, with Victoria securing the largest proportion of grants.

This means that researchers in Western Australia must work harder to be recognised. They rely on community support to continue their groundbreaking discoveries.

If you’d like to invest beyond the Perkins Discovery Partner or Perkins Pioneer Partner levels above, contact Celia to discuss a partnership package to suit your preferred level of investment.

Event Sponsorship

The Perkins manages two large scale fundraising events – Australia’s largest fundraising bike ride, the Cancer200 Ride for the Perkins in October, and the Walk for Women’s Cancer every April. Both events are epic in nature and involve members of the community going to super-human ends to raise money for research into some of the hardest-to-treat cancers.

Both events rely on substantial cash and in-kind support from the corporate world for their success. If you would like to discuss opportunities to join as an event sponsor, please contact Steve Currie.

Research Sponsorship

We also offer bespoke funding options if you are interested in supporting a specific researcher or medical research field. Please get in touch with Celia in our Corporate Partnerships team to discuss your ideas.
