Once signed up, look out for acts of kindness Get a CAN GIVE DAY surprise

CAN GIVE DAY is an annual 24-hour 'festival of giving' and Canberrans are invited to give donations or raise funds in gratitude of the exceptional patient care delivered by healthcare teams across Canberra Health Services. This year, CAN GIVE DAY will have more virtual events and online activities, celebrities and competitions — all to put the fun in fundraising and to keep us COVID-safe.

This year has meant bigger challenges, extra hours and greater worries, and you may not be able to commit to fundraising for CAN GIVE DAY.  If you can and want to fundraise or make a donation, Canberra Hospital Foundation can help with your ideas and keep the process simple.

Canberra Hospital Foundation is your charity.

Canberra Hospital Foundation is the endorsed charity for public health delivered through Canberra Health Services. Donations to CAN GIVE DAY uplifts the patient experience and enhances their wellbeing. The funds raised will transform away from bed spaces, purchase state-of-the-art treatment technology and equipment, and support clinical trials and therapeutic wellness programs for patients and healthcare teams.
