The Channel 7 Children’s Research Foundation has been supporting the researchers of South Australia for over 40 years, providing grants to advance the health, education and welfare of Australia’s children.
Today, the Foundation is especially committed to helping build knowledge and capability in the areas of child protection, children’s mental health, childhood obesity and understanding the impact that social determinants have on children’s health and development. A particular emphasis will be given to these areas in the 2020 Grant Round.
As a not-for-profit incorporated association and a registered charity, the Foundation aims to increase the funds it provides through investment returns from its endowment portfolio and by raising funds with South Australia’s business and family communities.
