2019 Father's Day Appeal
On Friday 30th August Victorians are once again being encouraged to 'G1VE 4 LIFE' to provide critical care for Australian Dads and their families.
The Alfred Father’s Day Appeal, now in its 19th year, has raised more than $8 million to support innovative and lifesaving work at The Alfred and this year we need your support more than ever!
Every donation made on Friday 30th August will be multiplied by four thanks to the pledged gifts of generous supporters such as Presenting Partner Bulla Family Dairy.
Since it first launched in 2000 donors to the Alfred Father’s Day Appeal have helped fund significant lifesaving initiatives, including:
- Assisting with the $1.5 million redevelopment of the Burns Unit – which played a key role in treating burns patients admitted following the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires.
- Assisting with funding a 48-bed Cardiac and Thoracic Centre – Victoria’s premier cardiac facility treating the most critical heart patients.
- Improving care for trauma patients by supporting world-leading research and purchasing lifesaving equipment to treat critically ill patients requiring life support.
In 2019 we hope to raise $1 million, with funds raised going towards research and services in trauma care, cancer care, adult cardiac care, preventative health and mental health services.
