Thank you for your interest in raising funds for Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District (ISLHD). You may want to raise funds for the health district, or nominate a specific hospital or service.
Proceeds from community fundraising activities and events, including online activities, help us to enhance our services and provide the best possible care to our patients.
In the past fundraising has been used to assist with purchasing new medical equipment, improving amenities and enhancing facilities.
There are a couple of things that you need to do before you start fundraising for us. To help you raise funds the right way we’ve put together some guidelines – please read these before you start.
The first thing you’ll need from us is a ‘Letter of Authority’ to fundraise on our behalf.
