Setting up an Auxiliary

Congratulations and thank you for deciding to establish a new RCH Auxiliary.

RCH Auxiliaries are a part of the RCH Foundation and are supported by a dedicated team of fundraising specialists. The primary goal of the RCH Auxiliaries is to raise funds for the RCH. Together with the RCH Foundation, you can choose what areas of the hospital your funds will support.

Establishing a new Auxiliary is an easy and fun way to support the RCH with your friends and/or family.

Please follow the below steps to get started:

Gather a group of like-minded friends or family members together who would like to fundraise for the RCH

Contact the Manager, Auxiliaries and Fundraising to set up a welcome meeting

Decide who will be your Office Bearers. Each Auxiliary is required to have a President and, if you maintain an external bank account, a Treasurer. You can have other officers of your choosing, such as a Vice-President or Secretary

Choose the name of your Auxiliary

Ensure that each Member of your Auxiliary meets the criteria for and complies with the Auxiliary Member Responsibilities (including completing a Police Check and Working with Children Check)

Decide what area/s of the hospital you would like to support. You can direct your funds to the area of greatest need or to a specific area within the RCH, as agreed with the RCH Foundation

Sign a Memorandum of Agreement for your new Auxiliary. This authorises your Auxiliary to fundraise for the RCH and provides insurance coverage

Arrange your photo ID with the RCH Foundation, to wear when you are onsite at the hospital
