Fundraising for the Foundation
Working together we can make a difference to the lives of sick kids in WA. Fundraising is one of the most powerful (and enjoyable) ways in which you can help transform the healthcare of WA’s sick children so they can live their healthiest and happiest lives.
From running an international marathon to hosting a school bake sale, we value the time, effort and care you put into your fundraisers—and we’re here to support you every step of the way. You can host your fundraisers in your community, online—or both at the same time.
Your fundraisers help us fund ground-breaking research, innovative equipment and technology, world-class expertise, and positive patient experiences. Join us today to raise funds and awareness in your community for our cause.
Your support helps us fund;
The Foundation funds an array of ground-breaking research that is discovering better ways to diagnose, treat and prevent childhood diseases like Brain Cancer, Cerebral Palsy and Cystic Fibrosis. In 2018/19 we provided over $2.5 million in research grants: a new milestone. We know this investment in today’s research will have a significant impact on the future healthcare of generations of WA kids.
The most advanced equipment and technology
The field of medical technology is an ever evolving one. Working closely with the Hospital and grant applicants we can identify the most urgent equipment needs of the Hospital. Through our generous donors and supporters, we ensure Perth Children’s Hospital is provided with leading edge equipment that improves diagnosis and treatment outcomes, enables the ability to perform surgeries that would not have been possible, shorten waiting periods and allows for a better standard of paediatric care.
The expertise of highly trained clinicians from Australia and around the world
Through Foundation funding were able to bring clinicians closer who are the best in their fields and support the translation of projects into clinical practice. Children in WA now not only have access to world-class care but these experts train and develop teams leaving a legacy of highly trained Hospital staff long after they’re gone.
Innovative education and training programs
As the world of paediatric medicine continues to evolve and innovate, there is a constant need to stay up-to-date with practices as they develop. As such, funding from the Foundation enable staff to attend training programs, study new practices and learn from international professionals through seminars and conferences, so they remain top of their game in delivering world-class care to WA sick kids.
Positive patient and family experiences
The Foundation supports critically important non-clinical programs at Perth Children’s Hospital such as Art Therapy, Music Therapy and Play Therapy in Fun on Four that are making a significant difference to the ability of kids to cope with the rigours of medical procedures and recover quicker.
