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.”

Colac Area Health 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.

 Our Vision

To support the work of Colac Area Health in building a healthier community.  By reaching out to our community and through our corporate  partnerships, we aim to raise vital funds to ensure the continued development of facilities and services, which will provide improved integrated health care for the patients of Colac Area Health & our community.

Our Values

Respect, Generosity, Creativity, Innovation, Integrity, Appreciation

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.

The Foundation respects donor confidentiality. Donation & bequest amounts are not revealed. The Foundation acknowledges all donations when a donor name and address are provided and tax deductible receipts issued promptly. However you can remain anonymous if you wish.


The Colac Area Health Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that accepts donations to support the health care mission of Colac Area Health. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. Receipts will be issued for all monetary donations.
