For over 100 years Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation has been the main fundraising body and largest private funder of Perth Children’s Hospital.
For over 100 years Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation has been the main fundraising body and largest private funder of Perth Children’s Hospital, as we were for Princess Margaret Hospital, as well as the wider Child & Adolescent Health Service in Western Australia. We also work hard to promote healthy lifestyle messages to support parents in keeping their children well.
When Princess Margaret Hospital became a government-run public hospital in 1978, the Board at the time established an official Foundation to raise funds for the hospital and assist it in accessing various new technologies, treatments, facilities and expertise. In 1998, the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation was formally established as the main fundraising body for Princess Margaret Hospital.
That same year the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation provided the hospital with its first grant to purchase equipment for the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit. A total of $2,054,168 was donated during the Foundation’s first financial year.
In the lead up to the opening of Perth Children’s Hospital, Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) Foundation changed to Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation in August 2016. Thanks to the wonderful generosity of our donors our total support in the past 21 years has been $81 million with a further $28 million committed over the next five years.
This funding ensures that our sick kids and young people continue to receive world class paediatric care.
