Make a difference to the health and wellbeing of your community!

Almost every person, at some point in their life, needs public health care. Canberra Hospital Foundation supports patients at any age, for any illness, from babies, children, teens to adults and the elderly, from those having treatment for cancer or chronic illness, to those recovering from injury, the vulnerable amongst us, and those people nearing end of life.
We are raising funds for specialised equipment and important research, refurbishments to help make away from bed spaces less clinical, provision of therapeutic programs, and comfort items for our patients and their loved ones. Your support helps people in Canberra and the surrounding region.

Through the generous support of our community we are helping to deliver exceptional patient care by funding...

Specialised & Innovative Equipment

State-of-the-art technology and equipment enables streamlined workflow for health professionals and helps to decrease the distress experienced by patients and their families and caregivers.

Medical Research & Clinical Trials

Medical research and clinical trials, including discovery research and research aimed at improving everyday patient care, patient wellbeing, and health outcomes.

Transformations & Refurbishments

Refurbishments of away-from-bed spaces transform the hospital experience. Bright artwork, cosy furniture, and inviting decor make spaces feel less clinical, offering respite and distraction for patients and their families.

Therapeutic & Supportive Programs

Therapeutic programs ensure patients' healing is holistic - taking into consideration mental and emotional wellbeing as a crucial aspect of the journey. The range of different programs offer outlets for relaxation, stimulation, creativity and companionship.

"The Canberra Hospital Foundation is the only organisation that exists to raise funds for the health and support services delivered in all public hospitals and health centres in Canberra, including the Canberra Hospital, Centenary Hospital for Women, Youth & Children, Calvary Public Hospital, Canberra Region Cancer Centre, and the University of Canberra Hospital and the community and walk in centres across Canberra."

Whatever you can give you can be life giving!

"The Foundation gives the community ownership of their health services. The support people give to the service that provided or the research that is undertaken is going to improve the healthcare services, not just for them, but for the greater population of the ACT and the surrounding areas."

Deb Rolfe AM, Chair of the Board since 2015

"The Canberra Hospital Foundation are absolutely invaluable for our patients. With the support from donors they do all of the things that just make patients’ time that little bit easier. When you’re dealing with cancer, there’s a lot of confronting things. If the experience can be made a little bit softer, a little bit more supportive, through things like the accommodation service, it makes a really big difference to the patients and their carers."

Caroline McIntyre, Canberra Region Cancer Centre
