Whether you can donate goods, send messages of love and support or adopt an entire hospital ward, your generosity makes a difference.
To keep our health teams and patients safe, all donations from individuals and businesses must be pre-arranged through Canberra Hospital Foundation.
What kind of gifts can I donate to patients or healthcare workers?
All donated gifts must be new and in original sealed packaging and donations of handcrafted items, home baked goods or home-cooked meals cannot be donated at this time due to infection control protocols.
High Priority Donations
- Good quality coffee and tea
- Entertainment gift cards: Google Play, Netflix, The App Store & iTunes Gift Card
- Restaurant and meal kit vouchers
- Personal care items
- New, unused sealed puzzles, board games and toys
There is also the option to Adopt a Ward and support an entire team at the hospital. Tell us about your idea on firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 02 5124 3542 to discuss your options.
My business would like to donate food or products.
It is heart-warming that during these difficult days, businesses like yours are willing to support healthcare workers in Canberra. We have a number of areas that have identified the type of support they need. Tell us more about your donation and we will help coordinate a delivery time, meeting place and contact. Please note that we cannot accept meal deliveries for patients.
Canberra Hospital Foundation would also like to direct other generous community members to purchase vouchers from you to support relief meals for our healthcare workers. Contact us at email@example.com to find out how to get involved.
I’ve sewn face masks for use at the hospital.
We greatly appreciate your thoughtfulness. At this time we are unable to accept hand crafted items such as home sewn face masks, gowns or blankets due to infection control restrictions.
How do I donate my gift?
Step 1: Contact Canberra Hospital Foundation on firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 02 5124 3542.
Step 2: We will help allocate your gift to where it is needed most and contact that area of Canberra Health Services
Step 3: Once we have an acceptance of your donation, we will send you a confirmation with a delivery date, time and contact person.
Step 4: Please share your experience on your social media using #CHFCareShare and tagging @canberrahospitalfoundation and @canberrahealthservices. That way you’re helping us spread the word about supporting Canberra’s health services throughout these difficult, unprecedented times. You can also take a photo with your donation and send it to us, and we’ll give you a shout out on our social media.
Again, thank you so much for thinking of patients and healthcare workers. We are truly grateful for your compassionate support.
