What We Do

The Colac Area Health Foundation was founded in 2011 to assist in extending the vision of Colac Area Health “… to be a recognised leader in the development and provision of responsive, integrated health care.”

The Colac Area Health Foundation (the Foundation) fosters strong philanthropic links between the community and Colac Area Health, establishing lasting relationships with individuals, organisations and community groups, creating better awareness of our health service. The Foundation is the vehicle through which our community can contribute to further develop Colac Area Health’s commitment to provide the community with an integrated health care service of excellence.

Every donation made to the Foundation will make a difference to patient care and help to build a healthier community.

The Foundation is guided by a board of directors, comprised of individuals who live and work within the Colac district. The Foundation board diligently manages the investment of funds raised through partnerships, fundraising events, donations and bequests.  The interest from these investments contributes to the purchase of new equipment, the introduction of new services and other projects for Colac Area Health.

Every gift strengthens Colac Area Health’s service to the community and is gratefully acknowledged.

It is also important to know that the Foundation respects donor confidentiality. Donation & bequest amounts are not revealed. The Foundation acknowledges all donations when a donor name and address are provided.  We have a thank you page where we list donors who have given to the Foundation – Please notify the Foundation if you would like your gift to remain anonymous.

The Colac Area Health Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that accepts donations to support the health care mission of Colac Area Health. Your generous support will help us continue to improve the tradition of excellence & quality health care provided to our community by Colac Area Health. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. Receipts will be issued on request for all monetary donations.
