We are currently fundraising for the New Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital with the help of telemarketeing agents to help us contact our supporters. Telemarketing enables us to talk to thousands of people across our regional catchment area about our hospitals’ needs.
Wellington Hospitals Foundation is the official charity for Wellington Regional Hospital, Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital, Kenepuru Hospital, Kapiti Health Centre and the Mental Health, Addictions and Intellectual Disability Service. Community support has enabled the Foundation to fund medical equipment, projects and other patient care items that have helped thousands of people in the Greater Wellington Region receive better healthcare.
Wellington Hospitals Foundation is an accredited member of the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA). You can find out more at www.pfra.org.nz.
100% of our funding comes from the community
We get no funding from the Government. Our mission is to fundraise for extra projects that the stretched health dollar does not fund.
Our region covers in excess of 900,000 people
We are the official charity for the Capital and Coast District Health Board, who provide specialist tertiary-level care to patients from Whanganui to Napier, down to Nelson and Marlborough.
