The Heart Foundation is New Zealand's leading independent funder of heart research. With the generous support of our donors, we've invested more than $74 million into heart research since 1968.
The Heart Foundation is the charity that works to stop New Zealanders dying prematurely from heart disease. We are committed to funding vital research, promoting heart healthy lifestyles and advancing cardiac care in this country.
We recognise the new priorities for all health professionals in dealing with the COVID-19 crisis and the new circumstances created by the Alert Level 4 shutdown of all but essential services.
The Heart Foundation has extended the closing date for current research grant funding applications to 5pm Monday, 4 May 2020.
