Fundraise for us

DIY fundraising event

If you're thinking about organising your own fundraising event, we'd love to be a part of it! By raising funds for the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, you’re helping us move towards a tomorrow where people don’t have to die from heart disease.

Fundraising can be a fun and rewarding exercise. The funds you raise will go directly to heart research. You’ll be helping the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute continue its world-class research into heart disease, the most deadly disease around the globe. 

Fundraising Events - How to Register

Each individual or fundraising group must register their event with the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute. You will then be provided with a letter of 'Authority to Fundraise' on our behalf. Please provide the following details in writing:

  • WHAT?
    What is the name of your event? What type of fundraiser will you hold? 
    For example: A trivia night, morning tea, luncheon, mufti day, sports event, car wash or fete.  
  • WHEN? 
    When are you planning on holding your event? Make sure it doesn’t conflict with any other fundraising activities or clash with local events. 
    Let us know all the exciting activities you have planned for the fundraiser. Will you be having a raffle draw? A silent auction? A charity sports match? 
    Once you have decided on your fundraiser, please make an estimate of how much money your event will raise.
    To make it official, send an email with all the details to our Fund Development team at, and they’ll be in touch.

Logo usage

The Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute is a valuable brand. Any use of our logo must be approved beforehand. The Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute's logos must not be changed or modified in any way. Each time you wish to produce materials (either electronic or physical) with our name or logos you must obtain approval from us first. This includes, but is not limited to, press releases, brochures and signage. Approval must be granted by the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute before printing, distributing or displaying publicly. 

Product endorsements

No material should be printed until the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute has approved the wording in the artwork.
