Our Values

Our success depends on our ability to nurture and sustain a great culture that attracts and retains great people.

In 2018 we conducted a benchmark Employee Engagement Survey to understand where we needed to focus our efforts. The outcome was a new Employee Value Proposition based on four Values and four Guiding Principles.

Our values

Together we can do amazing things for sick kids.

We are courageous

The Foundation recognises that courage is central to our current and future success. We encourage our staff and stakeholders to bring forward their great ideas for our collective ‘wise crowd’ to make them happen with our individual and collective courage.

We are supportive

The Foundation is an organisation that enables staff and volunteers to thrive. We are committed to developing the capabilities of our staff, and to achieving a positive, kind and productive workplace culture.

We are collaborative

The Foundation recognises that every person who engages with and contributes effort to the Foundation is one of our stakeholders. We collaborate and work in partnership with each of our stakeholders to deliver our shared purpose.

We are accountable

The Foundation is committed to being fully accountable for our decisions and actions. The responsibility to make planned decisions for the full utilisation of our resources, and the distribution of donor funds is a significant responsibility.


Our Guiding Principles: 

  • Every relationship matters and each is built on kindness, integrity and respect.
  • Working in partnership we connect funds with the greatest need for the maximum impact.
  • We ensure our donors know the positive impact they have.
  • We are inspired by children and families. Together with our community, we aim to cure and always care

Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation has a vision to ensure that every child - now and in the future - can access world-class medical care whenever they need it.
