St Vincent's Hospital Foundation

St Vincent’s Hospital Foundation draws on the fantastic support of community, businesses and charitable trusts to raise funds for areas of need across St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne. Each year, thousands of individuals and organisations give donations, grants and bequests to St Vincent’s for many reasons – in recognition of care they've received, in memoriam or celebration, or in support of particular appeals, departments or areas of medical research. The Foundation provides information, guidance and reassurance that all these donations are received and distributed to the areas our donors nominate.

The Foundation Team is made up of 11 enthusiastic staff members who work across a range of areas, including events, corporate sponsorship, community fundraising and donor relations. The Foundation Council is made up of 16 members from diverse business and community backgrounds, who provide high level support and strategic direction for the Foundation’s activities.

One hundred per cent of donations received by the Foundation are allocated to the areas our donors nominate. We are always happy to provide clear and detailed information about how we use donations and the practical ways in which they help us provide the best possible medical care, conduct world-class research and train the next generation of doctors, nurses and allied health clinicians.
