Healy Medical Research Foundation
The Healy Medical Research Foundation was established in 1970 through a generous bequest to the University of Western Australia by the late Patrick Burselum and Mary Estelle Healy and has a proud history of supporting medical research.
The Foundation is governed by a Deed of Trust, based on similar principles to the Raine Medical Research Foundation; it is administered by the same Research Committee and shares the same philosophy and commitment to medical research. The Healy Foundation has a portfolio that is presently valued at approximately $1M. The University manages the Capital Fund which is invested in a secure, diversified portfolio in the UWA Long Term Pool and Short Term Pool. The annual interest, which is distributed to the Research Committee for medical research, is normally in the vicinity of $70,000.
