Aegium Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to making older age a time of greater health, greater dignity and greater potential.
We believe everyone should be able to enjoy a fulfilling and contented life in their older years – a time when they can make the most of their leisure, celebrate their achievements and share their wisdom.
Working in Queensland, we achieve our mission by supporting initiatives in ground-breaking medical research, in rethinking services and in encouraging a deeper understanding of age-related issues amongst medical students.
How we support age-redefining initiatives
We seek out and fund medical research and treatment possibilities that may have the key to major improvements in health, happiness and well-being for older people.
We fund initiatives that encourage more medical students to specialise in geriatric medicine helping create a better care experience for every older person – not forgetting those who suffer challenges of distance, cultural difference or social disadvantage.

If your company offers a workplace giving scheme, please spare $5 or more a week to make a difference.

Whether it’s a casual clothes day at school or work, a coffee morning or something more ambitious, every dollar helps.
