The Foundation raises money specifically for MTHCS. While Government funding provides the essentials for our local health service, the funds raised by the Foundation make it possible for MTHCS to do more to provide the best care for our communities.
The Foundation is a separate entity to MTHCS and is managed by a board of seven local directors, who have a proud history of supporting health services in our communities over many years. Together, the directors use their professional expertise and local networks to ensure all money raised goes directly to what our communities need most.

The Foundation’s first priority is to raise money to purchase two patient transport and critical care defibrillator machines – one each for the Urgent Care Centres in Sea Lake and Ouyen.
In addition to this, the Foundation is also raising money for a Workforce Scholarship program that will operate over the next five years. This program will help MTHCS staff members access important training and education to improve skills and knowledge.
The Foundation’s future funding priorities will remain flexible and will reflect the needs of the health service.
