The NORTH Foundation is proud to be the registered charity for the Northern Sydney Local Health District (NSLHD) and to serve as the fundraising partner for Royal North Shore, Ryde and Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospitals and the Kolling Institute of Medical Research. While our clinicians, healthcare workers and researchers are proud to be able to serve the community, the NORTH Foundation is honoured to be able to support their work. We work to raise crucial support for hospital and research facilities, equipment, training and program support in order to ensure that our medical and hospital staff are able to continue providing high-quality patient and healthcare services.
Our Foundation is driven by a clear purpose to meaningfully engage with the community and showcase the incredible medical and health services work happening within the NSLHD. By doing so, we hope to present NORTH Foundation as the charity of choice that is worthy of support for those seeking to improve community wellbeing, hospital services, innovative medical research and the delivery of exceptional patient care.
The NORTH Foundation is built on four main pillars of purpose:
- Research: Funding world-class research that has a direct impact on the community and patient experience
- Education: Educating the community about the services NSLHD provides and how they can impact and support our work
- Care: Improve patient care and community facilities through the provision of new health services and medical equipment.
- Nurture: Develop long-term and meaningful relationships our community and supporters.
