The Children’s Hospital Foundation works wonders for sick kids by funding life-saving medical research, investing in vital new equipment, and providing some amazing entertainment, family support and care programs for sick kids. Our incredible volunteers are there to support little patients while they are in hospital, helping them to laugh and smile, get better and go home with their families.
Everything we do is made possible by the generosity of our partners and supporters. With your help, we will continue to fund research to achieve faster diagnoses, better treatments and ultimately cures for some of the most devastating childhood illnesses and injuries.
There’s a lot you can do to support a child with an injury, serious illness or life threatening disease. You can donate money to help save precious young lives. Donate your time to make a difference at our children’s hospital. Or raise funds for vital research and equipment, spread smiles and support families through difficult times.
You can make a difference and with your support, the wonders will never cease and the care will never stop.
A big part of what the Children's Hospital Foundation does is giving sick kids the best place in the world to get better, with innovative and fun entertainment designed to help them heal.

We’d like to say a big thank you to Primo Smallgoods and Hans Smallgoods for generously helping the Children's Hospital Foundation and The Coffee Club Telethon Ball create a very special Night in New York to help sick kids.
Just like a great broadway show, The Coffee Club Telethon Ball has sold out, but you can still help make it a night to remember.
Thank you to the riders of 1200kms for kids for stopping by and visiting the sick kids this weekend at Lady Cilento Children's Hospital.
Not only did they visit patients of the hospital, but the riders also donated an incredible $70,000 to the Children's Hospital Foundation, to help us continue funding the Queensland Children's Tumour Bank. The Tumour Bank is a collection of tissue samples which works to improve the treatment of kids battling cancer.
The 1200kms for Kids cyclists, celebrating their tenth anniversary ride this year, started their journey earlier in the week at the Sunshine Coast, and will finish their ride in Sydney.
Together, with the help of 1200kms for kids and our supporters, we can continue to give our kids the best possible healthcare in the world.
At only 10 days old, Lilly started having breathing difficulties and seizures and needed resuscitation. Lilly was rushed to the children’s hospital and was quickly tested and diagnosed with Parechovirus, a respiratory and gastrointestinal virus which can develop into hepatitis or encephalitis.
Our researchers are working hard to develop a vaccination for this potentially deadly disease. If the current pattern continues, the next outbreak is due in a year and a half.
Visit 9telethon.com.au to donate to this year’s Channel 9 Telethon, to help children like Lilly get better and go home sooner.
Last week, Children's Hospital Foundation CEO Cameron Prout had a very special visit from Bridget and her family.
Bridget has already endured more than any child should – she has beaten cancer twice. She was just three years old when she was diagnosed with a rare, life-threatening form of cancer called acute myeloid leukaemia. After enduring several rounds of chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant and months in isolation to beat cancer, she relapsed when she was six years old.
But today, as a healthy, happy and bubbly eight year old, Bridget and her family are doing everything they can to raise money for the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
We were delighted to accept this special cheque last week from Bridget on behalf of her mother Leigh, and the Office of the Public Guardian. Their donation will be used to help us fund life-saving research and medical equipment, and provide the highest level of care for sick kids and their families.
