What we do

The RCH Foundation raises, manages and distributes money to support our great hospital.

Income 2017/18

Thanks to our generous supporters, in 2017/18 the RCH Foundation raised more than $53.4 million across a range of income streams.

Funds raised are used to support programs and initiatives led by the RCH and its campus partners, the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute and The University of Melbourne Department of Paediatrics.

This level of support is truly humbling and we thank each and every group or individual who seeks to make a difference to the future of children’s health by giving to the hospital.

Distribution of income 2017/18

In 2017/18, $35.4 million was distributed to the hospital through the granting process. An additional $11.5 million was held for future granting.
