Corporate Partnerships

Australian businesses have the capacity to make an enormous contribution to our goal of reducing death and disability from heart disease in Australia. Through a partnership with Australia's unique Australian Centre for Heart Health , businesses can:

  • Align their brand to effective solutions to a national (and international) problem,
  • Demonstrate their commitment to corporate social responsibility, both internally and externally, and
  • Contribute to their triple-bottom-line reporting.

The Australian Centre for Heart Health works with corporate Australia to empower and educate people about heart disease.Such partnerships are vital to the long term viability of the Centre.

The Fundraising and Development team at the Australian Centre for Heart Health will work with your company to understand your corporate culture and needs. We consider your current altruistic activities and available resources, and provide help to develop a suitable partnership. Your contribution and level of involvement may vary, but every effort helps when transforming the lives of Australians now and for future generations.

Existing projects like our Cardiac Blues project succeed because of your support. Long term projects can be developed to focus on specific communities. The Australian Centre for Heart Health is supporting health professionals, individuals and communities to deliver health changes across rural, regional, metropolitan Australia. Whatever your goal, you can pursue it with us.
