The Glenelg Community Hospital Foundation is a charitable organisation established in 2015 to support the Glenelg Community Hospital, a not-for-profit community hospital that receives no government funding.
The Foundation seeks donations, bequests and sponsorship from individuals, businesses, corporations and philanthropic groups.
All funds raised are used for the acquisition of surgical, medical and ancillary equipment to enhance the services and care offered to our patients. Funds can also be used for refurbishment / rebuilding of the hospital to meet the changing expectations of our medical specialists, staff and patients.
The Foundation is endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a Deductible Gift Recipient, making all donations fully tax deductible.
Annually the hospital management identifies a project that will benefit our medical specialists, staff and patients.
This year the hospital’s major project is the upgrade of the CSSD Department. This is a very expensive process costing many thousands of dollars, but will ensure the the CSSD Department meets the new standards that are being introduced over the next 5 years.
By donating to this event, you will be supporting the Glenelg Community Hospital to fund our major project for 2017.
‘Ride for the Hospital’ - The major fundraising event for 2017 is the ‘Ride for the Hospital’.
Thanks to the generosity of Mick Annandale, a retired staff member, and his son James together with other staff members, the ride will be from Berri to Glenelg Community Hospital, a distance of approximately 250 kilometres, on 2nd April - 6th April. Raising money through sponsorship from individuals and businesses prior to and during the course of the ride.
We appreciate any level of support you can offer our cause including cash, donations, vouchers or services that can be used in a variety of fundraising activities. You can be assured that 100% of any monies raised will go towards the upgrade.

A bequest to the Foundation, a gift from your estate through your Will, is a very valuable way to assist the Foundation’s work.
The Glenelg Community Hospital values the trust of every bequest, by using them to enhance the value of the hospital in the community and benefit generations to come.
A person making a bequest may not wish to advise the hospital of their planned gift as it may not be realised until well into the future. However, we would sincerely appreciate the opportunity to thank the donor now for their intended generosity. On occasion, it may be appropriate to discuss the best way to use the intended gift and how best to acknowledge it when it is received.
A bequest may take a number of forms. It may be a gift of a specific sum of money, a percentage of the estate, or a gift of property such as real estate or artworks.
While you may draft a Will yourself, it is strongly recommended that you seek advice about the appropriate procedures from your Solicitor, Tax Adviser or a Trustee Company.
On occasion, family members may choose to ask relatives and friends to make a donation to the hospital in memory of their loved one. Such donations can be used for the Foundation’s current project or a project nominated by the family.
