How we are funded
The Black Dog Institute is funded through a variety of sources spanning the public and private sectors.
Research projects are supported predominantly through prestigious peer-reviewed grants from the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and Australian Research Council (ARC), beyondblue, Movember and Rotary Health. We also receive general funding for research infrastructure and operations from the NSW Government and competitive project funding from the Australian Department of Health, which supports research, clinical and education programs.
Donations from the private sector, including corporates, foundations, philanthropists and the general public, contribute to our education and community awareness programs, as well as funding specific research projects, such as pilot studies, prototype development and other innovative programs.
Black Dog Institute's fee-based education programs and clinics also contribute vital income, which is reinvested in our work.
