The Bupa Health Foundation is one of the largest sources of corporate giving dedicated to health in Australia. It is committed to investing in health innovation and world-class research that makes a real difference to the health of the community. The Foundation is particularly interested in health initiatives that address research gaps and those aligned with its key focus areas of wellness and obesity, healthy ageing and keeping healthcare affordable. The Foundation proactively seeks out partnerships with credible organisations through a mixture of targeted programs and a competitive national Expression of Interest (EOI) grants program where new relationships are reviewed and developed.

Important: No proposal will be reviewed unless it has been submitted using an online application form. Additional information or material may be submitted as an attachment at the end of the online application process. Bupa receives many requests for sponsorships so emailed proposals, mailed documents and requests for meetings will not be accepted without a completed online application being submitted and evaluated.
Bupa evaluates all sponsorship proposals submitted via the completed online application form. We will endeavour to respond to your application within 4 weeks.
During this period you may be asked for more information or to attend an initial meeting. Please ensure that your application is submitted at least four months prior to the required commencement date of the sponsorship so there is sufficient time to assess the opportunity, draft contracts and work together to develop a leveraging plan.
All sponsorship decisions are discretionary. Even if the criteria are fully or partially met, the sponsorship proposal may be declined due to budgetary constraints, competing priorities or other commercial reasons.
You will receive an email response advising whether or not your proposal has been successful. If successful, your proposal will be submitted to the next stage of consideration within Bupa.
