About the Organisation

Organisation Name : The Royal Children's Hospital Foundation

The RCH has been providing outstanding care to Victoria’s children and their families for nearly 150 years.

The RCH Foundation is the fundraising arm of the hospital. We raise, manage and distribute money to enable the RCH to provide the best care to patients and their families.

You can create a brighter future for sick children.

Donations support the RCH and its campus partners, The Murdoch Children’s Research Institute  and The University of Melbourne Department of Paediatrics, to push the boundaries of paediatric healthcare.

While the Victorian Government funds the hospital’s standard operating costs, donations support medical excellence. The programs and initiatives funded by donated money create outcomes that are above and beyond the hospital’s normal day-to-day activities. They take the RCH from a good hospital to a great hospital and what’s more – they wouldn’t exist without the generous support of people like you.
