Companies ranging from some of Australia’s largest corporations to smaller local businesses have given generously over the years to Monash Health hospitals, with both their time and expertise.
These donations have enabled our hospitals – Casey Hospital, Dandenong Hospital, Kingston Centre, Monash Medical Centre and Moorabbin Hospital, to purchase much needed medical equipment, undertake major capital redevelopments, expand their clinical and surgical services and provide better patient care to many thousands of people.
There are many ways that this support has been realised, including:
- Cash gifts or donations
Donating money towards the purchase of specific items of medical equipment to clinical areas in need. Donations of $2 or more to Monash Health are tax deductible
- Payroll deductions and gift matching
Some organisations have “adopted” a Monash Health service by encouraging their staff to consider regular and small deductions from their pay which are then transferred electronically to our bank account. These employee contributions are tax deductible. Companies will often match (dollar for dollar), the commitment provided by their staff.
- Gifts in Kind and Pro Bono Services
Businesses that may not be in the position to provide a cash gift often demonstrate their support by donating some of their products or services. This may be the provision of a raffle prize, the provision of food and/or other consumables which might otherwise be an operational or event management expense to the Monash Health, or by providing their technical and professional skills free of charge (ie printing, marketing and legal advice)
- Event Fundraising
Local businesses and community groups sometimes choose to run a company function or social event (ie. golf day, BBQ, Dinner Dance or Trivia Night) in support of a Monash Health service. Proceeds from such occasions are passed onto the Unit or service of their choosing.
