Your generosity heals.
Help change the experience of hospital today.
Your gift to the Canberra Hospital Foundation transforms away from bed spaces, purchases state-of-the-art treatment technology and equipment, funds therapeutic wellness programs, and supports research aimed at improving everyday patient care, patient wellbeing, and health outcomes. Give today and help bring comfort throughout the hospital journey for patients and families.
Our story began in 2008 with the ‘Our Wellness Foundation,’ created to promote the care and comfort for patients and their families at the Canberra Hospital and relaunched in 2011 as the Canberra Hospital Foundation. For the last decade, our aim has always been to provide support to public health in Canberra by working with the community to fund world-class health and healing service for patients, their families and carers.
Every year through Canberra Hospital Foundation, the community donations grant more than 100 funding applications from doctors and nurses to provide extra services, advanced treatments and uplifting environments. Canberra Hospital Foundation also coordinates special hospital visits by sporting teams and celebrities and the distribution of more than 7000 comfort items and 5500 Christmas gifts generously donated through our Donation Station.
You can help people affected by cancer in Canberra and the surrounding region.
The Canberra Hospital Foundation has been a proud beneficiary of Dry July campaign since 2009, with funds raised through the initiative supporting patients and their families at the Canberra Region Cancer Centre. Our adult patients living with cancer have gained so much from previous campaign funding, and we are so grateful for the community support!
We invite you to go Dry this July and help us continue to raise funds for this important cause. Read more.
Wrap Our Hearts Around You
Wrap Our Hearts Around You is a project which aims to unite Canberrans through the common activity of creating hearts. The hearts will be collected by the Canberra Hospital Foundation for a special celebration that will be symbolic representation of the appreciation and love in the community for our healthcare workers and patients.
The Canberra Hospital Foundation is committed to supporting people in our community who require healthcare services in Canberra especially those who are vulnerable and at risk in times like we are currently experiencing.
