With your support, we can strengthen your local hospital.
When you support your local hospital, you are supporting and strengthening your local community.
The Common Good doesn’t just back life-saving medical research. We also back hospital innovation projects to advance patient care, comfort and recovery.
Whilst the hospitals that we support are public sites, there are many projects and services that don’t receive government funding. When you support The Common Good, you help fill those gaps – the gaps that fund innovative projects to provide an extra level of care, support and comfort for the local community who rely on these hospitals.
Every community is different and The Common Good aims to grow health services and support programs which respond to the needs of these specific communities.

The Common Good supports hospital innovation initiatives aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of young families, the elderly, vulnerable members of the community and First Nations people.
