Donate to the Malaghan Institute - Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Malaghan Institute? 

The Malaghan Institute of Medical Research is New Zealand’s world-class independent biomedical research institute, harnessing the power of the immune system to fight disease and improve human health.

Our key areas of research and discovery include cancer, allergic disease, infectious disease and gut health, of which the immune system plays an important role in both prevention and treatment of these diseases and conditions.

Our value lies in being an independent research organisation backed by the community, for the community. As a registered charity, we are owned by New Zealand, for the benefit of all.

Thanks to the philanthropic support of New Zealanders both nationally and overseas, the Malaghan Institute has developed the capability and expertise to deliver significant health and economic benefits to New Zealand, while retaining the freedom, flexibility, and spirit needed to push scientific boundaries and make breakthrough discoveries.

Please, help us to continue to improve the health of all New Zealanders and beyond.

Why support the Malaghan Institute?

Too many of our loved ones are suffering and dying from preventable diseases like cancer or allergic disease because we don’t yet know enough about them. But we do know the immune system holds the key to better treatments and cures. With your support we discover new ways to treat and prevent these diseases from taking our loved ones.

By supporting the Malaghan Institute you will be helping our researchers gain a deeper understanding of the complex and powerful nature of the immune system, knowledge that lets us develop new, better, and lower cost treatments that are accessible for all New Zealanders.

You can help us to harness the power of the immune system and save lives.

What will my donation go towards?

Your donation will help us find better, more effective ways to treat and cure diseases that are robbing the lives of too many of our loved ones.

With greater support, the greater effort we can put towards finding new solutions to diseases from cancer to COVID-19, hepatitis B to asthma, Crohn’s disease to colitis. The longer we attack a question, the closer we get to an answer, to a breakthrough treatment. To make meaningful inroads into how to leverage the power of the immune system against some of the most prevalent diseases of our time, we need to provide our world leading scientists with the space, resources, and support to do so - and this heavily relies on funding from the community.

Your donation, no matter how big or small, will help ensure we can keep the pace of our science and discovery going uninterrupted.
