About the Organisation

Organisation Name : The Royal Children's Hospital Foundation

Founded in 1989, The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) Foundation is the fundraising arm of The Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne; one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals. The Foundation has the vital role of raising, investing and distributing donated funds to the hospital. A legally separate organisation, the Foundation works closely with the RCH and its Campus Partners (MCRI and UoM) in achieving its vision.

Generous community support helps to sustain the hospital’s role as international leader, tackling some of the world's biggest health issues, and the Foundation supports a vast network of fundraisers and donors. Donated funds drive the hospital’s growth, are utilised for purposes of medical excellence, and support only the most innovative, life-changing programs and initiatives – that would otherwise not exist - in the areas of research, leadership, training, technology, equipment, and patient and family-centred care.
