Help older Australians in need before 30 June

Your donation to HammondCare’s Care Fund will provide critical assistance for the growing number of older people who are unable to cover out-of-pocket medical expenses and everyday essentials.

Groceries $60 can provide groceries for home care clients struggling to make ends meet.
Blankets $120 can supply blankets or new winter clothes for vulnerable clients.
Doctor $250 can cover out-of-pocket costs for specialist medical appointments.

You can make a difference

As an independent Christian charity, we are committed to improving the quality of life for people in need through our aged and health services, no matter their race, faith, or circumstances.

Many seriously ill and older Australians have care needs that aren’t covered by Government funding. This is why the HammondCare Foundation is dedicated to raising vital funds to enhance and provide high quality care for those who others can’t or won’t.

By donating, you help ensure that people in need receive the care and support they deserve.

Regular Giving

Regular donations are the gifts that keep on giving to those in need. At HammondCare, we rely on the generosity of people to help us achieve our care goals, and provide vital support to those in the community who are most in need. You can ‘set and forget’ your regular donation, knowing that you’re making a difference.

In Memory Giving

Celebrate the life of a loved one in a meaningful and lasting way by giving a gift in their memory. 'In Memory' gifts help us to expand our care for others, undertake research and grow our services for those in need.

Many people choose to commemorate the life of a loved one by asking for a donation rather than flowers at the funeral service or memorial. Most funeral directors can assist with the collection of donations in lieu of flowers and we can supply envelopes specifically for this purpose.

Leave a Gift in Will

You can choose to leave a Gift in Will to HammondCare, as a way of supporting the essential work we do for those in need. By leaving a bequest to the HammondCare Foundation, your legacy will help us continue to champion improving the provision of quality care for older Australians for many generations.

If you’re considering leaving a Gift in Will, we would love to speak with you. We welcome the opportunity to get to know you and your unique story, and discuss the areas of our work you would like to support. Please call Nina Johnson from the Foundation Team on (02) 8280 8432 or send an email.

Fundraise your way

Put the 'fun' in fundraising by raising awareness within your local community, as an individual or group. Get creative with your fundraising initiative, and spread the word online.

To start a community fundraiser, you must apply for an 'Authority to Fundraise'. Read more on how to apply.
