What is CAN GIVE DAY?

CAN GIVE DAY is a powerful fundraiser to support the delivery of exceptional patient care for people in Canberra and the surrounding region. 

Now it's fourth year, CAN GIVE DAY supports our healthcare services in a way that makes such a huge difference to our patients. It's also a great way for our community to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of Canberra Health Services teams.

CAN GIVE DAY continues to grow in strength, raising an impressive $317,000 in its debut year. Even in the virtual landscape of 2021, the Canberra community came together to raise $303,000, which ultimately led to 2022, where we raised over $341,000.

This year we are reaching even higher than before with a goal of $400,000. Can you help us achieve our goal?

You can get involved by:

Funds raised go to support clinical trials and medical research in Canberra, therapeutic and supportive programs, transformations of away-from-bed areas, and the purchase of speciality medical equipment, which enhances the patient experience throughout the year.

I CAN, you CAN, we all CAN give this Friday, 13 October.
