2018 Father's Day Appeal

2018 Father's Day Appeal

Thank you for helping make sure the best care is available for Australian Dads and their families when they need it most.

As one of the nation’s leading hospitals, The Alfred cares for the sickest patients in Victoria.

For one day only, we held a very special Father’s Day Appeal: G1VE 4 DADS.

G1VE 4 DADS was aiming to raise $800,000 to purchase new, state-of-the-art equipment that will benefit all our patients.  Thanks to the generous support of the community, that target was smashed and we raised over a million dollars!

To help us reach this target, every donation you made on Friday, 31 August was multiplied by four thanks to the pledged gifts of our generous supporters. This meant your gifts had four times the impact.

Together, we have helped make a positive change for Victorian families.

Every $1 donated was MULTIPLIED BY FOUR

Your gift of $25 X 4 = $100 

Your gift of $50 X 4 = $200 

Your gift of $250 X 4 = $1, 000 

How it works

Every $1 you donated was MULTIPLIED BY FOUR.

Every donation you gave was matched by the pledged gifts of community leaders and philanthropists. 


Only donations made before midnight on the 31st of August were matched.

  • Jacob Fry: appeal ambassador

    Jacob was injured in a car accident and airlifted to The Alfred, where he was rushed straight to theatre.

  • James Lake: appeal ambassador

    James was camping when something as simple as making a cup of tea took a nasty turn.

How your donation will help

In our biggest operation ever, The Alfred is planning to harness the speed of digital technology to introduce a new clinical system that will provide our doctors and nurses with the information they need, when they need it.

The Alfred has always put patients first. And now with an upgrade to digital medical records, our care will evolve to the next level.

A key part of this upgrade is the purchase of new connected ECG monitors, vital signs monitors and upgraded bedside mobile workstations, all digitally connected.

By supporting our Father’s Day Appeal you have helped us provide even better care for patients right at the bedside.
