Frequently Asked Questions

How does my donation help?

Every donation made to NORTH Foundation directly helps the Northern Sydney Local Health District, its hospitals and medical research institutes.

Regardless of the size of the gift, you will be making a direct and tangible impact on the lives of patients by supporting our medical services and research.

Can I contribute to a specific department if it is not listed?

YES! If there is a specific department you would like to support and it does not have an assigned button, simply click the ‘Other’ button and specify the department or unit in the notes box.

We will always ensure your gift goes directly to that area and if we are unable to do so we will contact you to discuss further.

Why do you ask people to become regular donors?

We are always grateful to donors who choose to commit to donating to us on a monthly or annual basis. By choosing to make a regular gift, you will be helping us plan-ahead and make long-term improvements for our patients, hospital staff and researchers. A regular gift allows us to be strategic and plan for the future, as we then know we have a steady donation stream that can be relied upon.

If you would like further information about becoming a regular donor you can contact us at: [email protected]

Can I donate in other ways than just online?

We strive to make giving a gift online as easy and secure as possible for our donors.

However, if you would like to make a gift via the phone you may call us on (02) 9436 0162.

Where do your donations go?

Funds raised go towards the NORTH Foundation’s mission of improving community wellbeing by supporting:

  • innovative world-class medical research
  • the delivery of exceptional patient care, and
  • community education and health promotion.

Unless you request a specific cause, your funds will be applied in the most effective way as determined by the Foundation and Northern Sydney Local Health District (NSLHD).

A portion of the funds raised are allocated towards paying for the annual expenses of the Foundation and towards building a Foundation endowment fund to support future financing of fundraising activities.  Note that where specifically communicated to donors, some donations are passed through 100% to end causes. We also receive a direct contribution from NSLHD towards our operational costs as well as interest income on funds held. The net result is that 89% of every dollar raised last Financial Year was available to be spent on the Foundation’s objectives.
