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.

The WCH Foundation relies on the generous contributions from the community and corporate organisations to brighten the lives of patients and their families and support brilliant care at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

Thanks to our generous community, the WCH Foundation funds Arts in Health, family support programs including the ‘Laklinyeri’ Beach House, Hospital facility upgrades, equipment, and invests in medical research.

Our ongoing support has a lasting impact on the health and wellbeing of children and families who rely on the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
