SCHF in action

One foot at the front line and one in the future of kids’ health.

Programs and Innovations

One thing that has remained constant in the story of Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation over the last 35 years has been our willingness to evolve and adapt to meet the changing needs of sick kids and the shifting fundraising and philanthropic landscapes.

Always looking to stay ahead of the curve, we have harnessed innovation, collaboration and creativity to develop new ideas and find new approaches through the creation of a number of exciting projects, programs and initiatives.



An innovative process that finds and funds critical paediatric research Initiatives that will have the greatest Impact on Kids' health.
