We cover vast areas of predominately rural North West NSW and Southern East QLD where there is a high prevalence of preventable disease. As health professionals, we recognise the social determinants of health and seek to make positive, sustainable change to the health of the population by partnering with communities.
Each year, the HealthWISE Gift Fund accepts applications from community groups for grants up to $3,000. We select up to three eligible organisations and partner with them to deliver a successful project. Administration and oversight of the HealthWISE Gift Fund is subject to rigorous governance processes www.healthwise.org.au .
Most HealthWISE services are made possible through government funding, however the HealthWISE Gift Fund relies on donations. Each year, we aim to raise $9,000 to continue the HealthWISE Gift Fund.
Your donation will enable us to support small community groups to run a pet project that aims to prevent disease in the community that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to run. We will keep you updated on the success of the projects you’ve enabled.
In 2020 we are seeking to support projects that support recovery and resilience in drought and bushfire affected communities.
Projects we have supported in 2018 and 2019:
Tamworth Cycle Club
Gomeroi Gaayngaal Centre
Moree Secondary College
Walhallow Aboriginal Corporation
Pilliga New Generation Football Club
