Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation is the only dedicated fundraising body for Perth Children’s Hospital, with all net income raised by the Foundation made available to the Hospital and wider Child and Adolescent Health Services (CAHS). 

In the 2019/2020 Financial Year, we gave more than $8.7 million in grants, a new record for the Foundation. We work closely with the Hospital to fund projects, initiatives and activities to create better outcomes for WA’s sick kids.

Through our Grants Program, Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation enable the Hospital and wider Child and Adolescent Health Services (CAHS) clinicians and researchers to help transform the healthcare of sick children in WA, so they can live their happiest and healthiest lives.
