Gold Coast Hospital Foundation

About Gold Coast Hospital Foundation

Gold Coast Hospital Foundation is the official charity for Gold Coast Health. As a locally-based community organisation, we raise funds to support patients and their families by delivering local health programs and projects. Our purpose is to relieve medical hardship caused by illness, injury or disability while supporting the incredible patient care provided by Gold Coast Health medical professionals.

With no government funding, the Foundation relies on the generosity of its valued supporters, sponsors, corporate partners, community groups and individuals who raise crucial funds through donations, events, appeals, bequests, regular giving and other fundraising activities.

Together with this wonderful support, the Foundation is committed to raising much-needed funds to benefit the health and well-being of children and adults across the Gold Coast region. The Foundation does not fund anything that government budgets provide, but rather delivers a range of vital support programs that would not otherwise be available to patients and their families at local public hospitals and community health facilities.

We fund and deliver the vital extras to improve patient care and comfort including:

Cancer Patient Transport Service
Emergency Accommodation Service
Purchasing medical equipment and aids
Funding hospital-led health research
Improving hospital facilities and patient spaces
Providing scholarships for Gold Coast Health staff
