About Us

The Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation (WCH Foundation) raises funds and invests in initiatives to support the Women’s and Children’s Hospital; South Australia’s only dedicated children’s and obstetrics hospital.

We have provided more than $36 million to the Hospital over the past 10 years, and are committed to ensuring that mums, children and their families have access to the very best in medical care, hospital facilities and support services at a time when they need it most.

The WCH Foundation relies on the generous contributions of corporate organisations and the community to raise much needed funds to support the work of the Hospital. Our goal is to inspire our community to invest in the Hospital and contribute to the provision of the best possible medical equipment, facilities and environment for patients, along with funding revolutionary research projects to find new ways to prevent disease, cure illnesses and improve lives.

Thank you for helping us change and save little lives!
