About Us

Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation is an independent Health Promotion charity with DGR 1 status.

Established in 1986, to date we have contributed almost $200 million to support sick children and their families.

In May 2018 we expanded our fundraising portfolio to include all the paediatric services within Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network:

  • Kids Research
  • Bear Cottage
  • The Newborn and paediatric Emergency Transport Service (NETS)
  • Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick
  • The Children’s Hospital at Westmead

We are proud of what the expanded Foundation has been able to achieve, but we know there is more to be done. We have a bold new purpose and we’re breaking new ground to deliver on our promise to deliver extraordinary outcomes for children’s health and wellbeing – finding new ideas and new approaches, shifting how we think about our role and exploring the never been done before.

We’re inviting the whole community to join us in making our purpose a reality. Our 2019-2022 Strategy provides a roadmap that will be our guide.
