Gold Coast Hospital Foundation

Here at Gold Coast Hospital Foundation we understand that health affects everyone and at some point in everyone’s life they will need to access the services of a health clinic or hospital. This includes you, your family and friends. It is our aim to raise vital funds to make sure these hospitals and clinics are able to offer you and your community the very best care, close to your home.  As the official charity of the Gold Coast Hospital and Health Service, the Foundation raises vital funds to help local children and adults overcome the financial and emotional distress and hardship that so often accompanies being unwell and/or injured.


With the assistance of important community organisations like yours, we help deliver health projects that add value to existing health services and facilities to improve the experience and outcome for patients in your community.  As a Public Benevolent Institution, our main focus is on delivering essential patient support services such as the Cancer Patient Transport Service and Trauma Support Service; the purchase of modern medical equipment and aids and seed-funding for cutting edge clinical and medical research.


The next 12 months brings extraordinary opportunities for you to help GCHF improve public healthcare in your local community. By raising funds to donate to GCHF, you could help deliver a vital medical project.
