  • Supporting building redevelopment and refurbishment programs to meet the changing needs and expectations of the community; and
  • Funding approved patient care services at the hospital, such as funds towards an additional part-time specialty nurse for breast cancer patients.

Burnside Hospital Foundation recieves donations and bequests from generous members of our community,  businesses, and philanthropic trusts and foundations. We also generate income from fundraising events and through the sale of merchandise such as Entertainment Books.

Supporters receive regular newsletters to keep them up to date with our activities.
