Wrapping up 2023

As we roll into the new year, as a team we’ve been reflecting on what we are proud of and our best moments of 2023. We’ve done a L O T!!

We thought it would be nice to share our best moments and what we are proud of for 2022 with our supporters!

Nicci Dent – CEO: “I’m most proud of the fact that we funded many cutting-edge research projects, and gave out a remarkable $1.764 million in grant funding commitments. All of which wouldn’t be possible without the support of our wonderful donors, our passionate staff and dedicated volunteers.” 

Diane van de Merwe – Philanthropy Manager: “My best moment was the morning tea with the researchers event. I loved being able to meet our supporters again and hearing directly from our researchers about their latest research.”

Miriam Morgan – Direct Marketing Manager: “I’m proud of seeing our supporters appreciate and engage in the work that we are doing. Over time I have loved congratulating our 200+ prize winners for our Play for Purpose raffles including 30 alone this year.”

Jenny Bartrop – Communications and Corporate Partnerships Manager : “I’m proud of the media engagement we had for REDFEB, spreading such a vital heart health education message to the community with over 216 digital articles and a digital reach alone of 128 million plus 4 TV spots, 2 podcast features and 6 print stories.

Felicity Wright – Communications Specialist: “I’m proud of joining the team and being part of such a small and dedicated group of people.”

Mira Kapali – Business and Finance Officer: “I’m proud that after years of juggling study whilst working I have finally completed my Bachelor in Accounting!!”

Carsten Uth – IT Specialist: “I am most proud of implementing further security measures to keep our IT systems and donor information safe and secure.” 

Sienna Friginal – Fundraising and Marketing Co-ordinator: “I am most proud of being able to personally show my appreciation to each of the donors that reach out to us and share with them how truly grateful we are for each donation whether small or large and how they all help us achieve our research goals.” 

We are truly grateful for all the amazing support our donors have given to us throughout this year. We are a small team so funding the number of research projects we have, has been an incredible highlight for us all, and one that would not have happened without your generous support.  

A huge thank you to all of you!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and health and happiness for the new year.

A big thank you from some of our researchers to our generous and loyal donors.
