Sponsor a Window of Hope on SAHMRI’s iconic building to help fund life-saving medical research

Sponsor one of the 15,000 windows that make up the Cheese Grater building with all proceeds going directly to the incredible research that happens within.

SAHMRI’s Windows of Hope campaign is a chance for you to actively help change lives for the better by sponsoring your very own window, giving you a virtual piece of the iconic Cheese Grater building on North Terrace.

The 15,000 windows surrounding the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute make for a spectacular visage and represent its mission, but none of the life-saving research underway inside would be possible without the generous support of those on the outside looking in.

For just $20 a month, proceeds from your Window of Hope will go directly to funding the life-saving medical research like the project that saved the life of cancer survivor, Michelle Nightingale.

“I was diagnosed with a very rare strain of leukaemia called acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APML) and there were no answers,” she recalls.

“It was about me relinquishing control and trusting the doctors and the researchers and the treatment protocols. Trusting that what they were giving me would allow those hopes to become reality.

“I didn’t know this at the time, but it was a SAHMRI researcher that wrote the new treatment protocol for APML. It was basically a cure and without it, I wouldn’t be here.”

Michelle’s success story is far from an isolated case. SAHMRI is making a remarkable contribution across the health and medical research industry and as a window sponsor, you’ll receive an official certificate and regular updates on the work you are helping to fund.

You’ll also be able to write your own personal message of hope to display on a virtual window and be invited to unique events where you’ll meet the researchers, and learn about their work and the impact of your contribution.

More than 700 researchers stare out of SAHMRI’s windows and see the homes, workplaces and people that form part of the community they’re working tirelessly to help. From studying chronic diseases and COVID, to nutrition and cancer, SAHMRI’s people are improving quality of life and health outcomes for all of us, throughout all stages of life.

SAHMRI is a symbol of hope and every time members of the public pass by the building, we’re reminded of the progress being made towards a happier, healthier future for all.

“When I look through the windows of SAHMRI, I see hope,” says Michelle. “Hope for so many people who all of a sudden have lost control over their lives, this is where control can potentially be found again.”
