$100M raised for sick kids by the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation

2 min read

Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation (SCHF) announced a record-breaking result for the sick and injured kids being cared for across the Sydney Children’s Hospital Network – more than $100 million raised in the past financial year. 

SCHF’s supporters, donors and partners – 33,000 people in the past year- made SCHF the first Australian children’s health charity to raise more than $100 million in a single financial year. 

Their generous donations impact the frontline and future of kid’s health, supporting The Children’s Hospital at Westmead and Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick in enhancing clinical care and patient experience for the sickest kids being treated across both hospitals. 

“We are incredibly proud of our generous donors for going all in for kids’ health and coming together to reach this $100 million milestone,” said SCHF Acting CEO Kate Ferguson. 

“This result inspires us to raise even more for sick children in hospitals and continue to harness the power of philanthropy to make a transformative impact on pediatric health.” 

“We are fortunate to have a great public health system in New South Wales, but government funding can never meet all of the demand or all of the opportunity in kids’ health.” 

According to Ferguson, Philanthropy plays a crucial role in delivering the highest standard of clinical care, the best possible patient experience and cutting-edge research that can deliver new therapies and treatments. 

For the 159,000 kids who visit the Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead or Bear Cottage each year, and for those transported by the Newborn and Paediatric Transport Service or benefit from the work of Kids Research, this $100 million means new equipment, training and education for their clinicians, groundbreaking research and state-of-the-art facilities.  

“Without a doubt, all Australians share in the mission of providing the best possible care for sick kids in hospital,” added Ferguson.  

“The community’s generosity and support for SCHF and the sick kids of New South Wales demonstrates that our shared sense of purpose and compassion, our collective effort to go all in for kids’ health, will have a significant impact for children, now, and for generations to come.”
