Making a difference: how you can help
The Heart and Lung Transplant Trust (Victoria) receives little Government funding and is reliant on generosity from supporters, the corporate sector and other key organisations. Importantly, the organisation is a tax-deductible gift recipient. All of our committee give their time on a voluntary basis. We employ no paid staff.
HLTTV accepts donations, raises funds and makes direct financial contributions to The Alfred transplant clinics for the purchase of specific equipment and provision for special programs. From time to time we also assist individuals financially, guided by the advice of transplant services at The Alfred.
Over the last few years, HLTTV has provided treadmills and exercise bikes to The Alfred physiotherapy gymnasium, which are used continually by pre and post transplant patients; refurbished consulting rooms at the Transplant Clinic; purchased IT equipment for The Alfred; and also furnished a ‘quiet room’ for families on the Heart Transplant Ward. HLTTV offers a fitness grant to its post transplant members to assist in expenditure for fitness activities. The idea is to help post transplant members to maintain fitness and general wellbeing by partially reimbursing for fitness and/or wellbeing expenditure.
Much of our fundraising is dedicated to support the Second Chance Accommodation Program.
