Donating directly to the Burnside Hospital Foundation is the simplest and most effective way to show your support.
You can make a gift online now, through GiveNow.
The Foundation is an endorsed Deductible Gift Recipient by the Australian Taxation Office, which means that donations of $2.00 or more are fully income tax deductible; and a “registered charity” in South Australia, holding Collections for Charitable Purposes Licence 1247. It is also registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission, established to regulate and oversee charitable activities in Australia.
Supporters receive a regular newsletter to keep them in touch with news at the hospital, and the latest on the activities of the Foundation. Click here to view the most recent newsletter.
Each year we publish a snapshot of our audited finances in our newsletter so our community can clearly see how we raise money, and how it is used. You can request a copy of the most recently published information (2014-15) by emailing our office - firstname.lastname@example.org
The Board of the Foundation and the Board of the Hospital may sometimes choose to recognise major gifts or bequests to the Foundation by the naming of a piece of equipment, or a room or area of the hospital. Visitors to the hospital will see many signs recognising the generosity of the Foundation’s supporters throughout the building, including three large glass panels in the hospital foyer listing those who contributed to The Burnside Hospital Development Appeal in 2000-2002.
Five Star Supporters of the Burnside Hospital Foundation
The Burnside Hospital Foundation also recognises regular donors through its Five Star Supporters programme, first launched in 2006. Individuals and businesses who donate more than $100 in any one calendar year automatically become Five Star Supporters of the Burnside Hospital Foundation, with five different membership levels ranging from Bronze to Platinum, depending on the amount given each year. We publish a list of all Five Star Supporters for each category annually, in our first newsletter for the year; donors can choose to remain anonymous if wished.
Full details on becoming a Five Star Supporter of the Foundation are in the brochure which you can download here – Burnside Hospital Foundation Five Star Supporters; or call the Burnside Hospital Foundation office on 8202 7248 to have a copy mailed to you.
