Children's Hospital Foundation

The Children’s Hospital Foundation is the official charity of the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, the Centre for Children’s Health Research, and for all sick kids throughout Queensland.  We work wonders for sick kids by funding life-saving medical research, investing in vital new equipment, and providing comfort, entertainment, family support and care programs for sick kids.

Advances in medical research can replace fear with hope in some miraculous and life-changing ways to improve the quality of life for children everywhere. Through the generosity of our supporters, the Children’s Hospital Foundation funds research focussed on translational outcomes that improves children’s health and leads to faster diagnoses, better treatments and ultimately cures for some of the most devastating childhood illnesses and injuries. The Children’s Hospital Foundation is also focused on funding Queensland-based research that supports Children’s Health Queensland’s research strategy and themes.
