I would like to make ongoing donations, how can I do this?

We’d love that! You can join the Bandaged Bear Club, which provides a system for regular donations. It’s flexible so that you can choose how often you donate (monthly, quarterly and annually) as well as how much you would like to donate.

There’s a minimum of $10 per month. You can choice to donate by automatic transfer or via your credit card. Have a look at our Regular Giving Program.

Where can I purchase your merchandise from?

Our merchandise can be viewed and purchased at our Volunteers Shop which is located within the Hospital.

A loved one has passed away and we would like to make a donation to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. How do we do that?

Many people support the hospital by providing an In Memoriam donation instead of flowers at the funeral of a loved one.

If you are organising a funeral, please ask your Funeral Director to provide The Children’s Hospital at Westmead’s In Memoriam envelopes at the service of your loved one. Alternatively, email us or call on (02) 9845 3367 and we'll organise to have the envelopes delivered within 1-2 working days.

You can also make In Memoriam donations online, and we will send a letter to the person's family you have donated in memory of notifying them of your gift. For privacy, we do not disclose the donation amount. For donations over $2, we'll send a tax deductible receipt.

For more information about making an In Memoriam donation, please call (02) 9845 3367.

I am having a celebration event and would like my guests to donate in lieu of gifts, what do I need to do?

You can set up an online fundraising page and direct your guests to make donations online. You will be able to set a donation target, see individual donations from friends and family and with the total raised. 

For more information about making celebration donations, please call (02) 9845 3367.
