Our Vision

We have reimagined our purpose and committed to a bold new purpose:

Healthy Kids - whatever it takes

The work of Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation has never been more critical.

With a rapid rise in the demand for - and cost of - clinical care for children, due to population growth, changing demographics, inflation and budget constraints, we know we need to be innovative in how we operate and agile in how we respond.

This is particularly relevant when considering the changing philanthropic environment we are facing, including generational differences in donor motivation, needs and expectations.

We are working towards a world where every child has access to the best healthcare, when and where they need it, and to achieve our vision we want to involve the entire community in bringing it to life.

Our operating model

Our strategy will be executed through three complementary pillars, each of which will operate independently while also delivering equity to the others.

Fundraising: we will leverage core fundraising channels to support the current needs of our donors and beneficiaries.

Development: we will attract new philanthropic support and investment in capital campaigns.

Innovation: we will explore new funding pathways, design innovation pilots and seek opportunities to launch social ventures.

This model has been designed to allow us respond to trends in philanthropy and leverage the opportunities offered by our expansion.

Our heritage and credibility will create a platform for innovation and drive new thinking that amplifies our impact. This will help to create a stronger profile for the Foundation with a louder voice on issues that affect children’s health. We will also continue to embed health promotion messages and initiatives throughout our work.

We will stay true to our Values and always aim to exceed community expectations in everything we do. Read our donor promise.
