Supporting the RACGP Foundation
My wife, Dr Jill Rosenblatt and I have donated to the RACGP Foundation and we encourage RACGP members to consider a donation as well. The advancement of quality health care in Australia relies on encouraging more evidence-based research by our RACGP members. This year over $500k in grants were made available by the RACGP but with 65 applications this year alone, more funding is necessary to meet this growing demand. Join us in supporting the work of the RACGP Foundation.

Sponsorship and Partnership Opportunities
Through a total RACGP partnership package, the RACGP Foundation is eager to expand the Foundation program to offer GPs more grants each year with higher dollar values. The Foundation is keen to partner with health associations in both 50/50 shared funding or 100% offered annual grants representing the association's area of discipline. The RACGP Foundation is also eager to partner with corporations offering 100% annual funded grants where practical topics impacting GPs are addressed that also help to promote the sponsor's strategic direction.
