Annual and Impact Reports


Briella and Maddy
Transforming the lives of sick and injured children through clinical excellence, patient experience and cutting-edge research is why we exist. As we strive to create the biggest possible impact, we simply could not achieve these life-changing results without you.

Support of any kind helps bring us closer than ever before to making our mission – healthy kids, whatever it takes – a reality. Whether you’ve hosted a fundraising event, left a lasting legacy as a gift in Will, donated your time by volunteering, got involved through one of our major appeals, supported us through workplace giving, or kindly provided gift-in-kind, you’re helping fight for the health and wellbeing of all children in an ever-changing world.
Thanks to you - our generous donors, volunteers, fundraisers and partners - we can provide all children with access to the best healthcare, whenever and wherever they need it.

Thank you for fighting for the health and wellbeing of all children in an ever-changing world. With your support, we raised

Impact Snapshot

Thanks to your ongoing support, we donated $40,226,553 towards our three key funding areas of research, clinical care, and patient experience. These vital funds go towards the prevention or management of childhood illness or injury, with a focus on kids and families receiving treatment or care from services provided by Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network (SCHN). To help deliver further impact for SCHN’s staff and patients, in partnership with our Movement of Many, we were able to provide an additional $4,996,711 in gift-in-kind support. 


Clinical Care


Patient Experience



Clinical Care

In 2022, we continued to help improve the lives of the 158,000 sick and injured children who needed urgent care across Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network, one of Australia’s largest children’s hospitals networks providing paediatric services.

Your support helped fund crucial equipment, critical positions, major and minor building projects, and accelerated clinical education programs to transform patient care, now and into the future.

Helping Sick Kids

Whether it’s contributing towards our three key funding areas, making a difference today, or working to shape tomorrow, every donation is revolutionising paediatric healthcare. In your $1, 72 cents is directed to the front line of children’s healthcare and the remaining 28 cents helps us raise the next dollar.

* In FY21, governance and administration residual costs were covered by investment and other income, and the remaining balance was allocated to funding for research, clinical care and patient experience.
