As a small community based not for profit organisation we are constantly on the look out for funding opportunities to enable more deserving children access to our specialist programs.

Since inception in 1997 we have independently raised over $3,000,000 via sponsorships and donations from a wide range of sources including large corporations, smaller companies and businesses, community based clubs and hotels, philanthropic bodies, schools and individual donors.

In this time we have received no Government although this is something we are now vigorously pursuing.

Without the support or our fantastic supporters who have assisted us now and in the past, Heartwell simply would not exist.

And hundreds of disadvantaged children would not have had the opportunity, or would have been denied access to participate.

We are indebted to all our supporters large and small and thank them sincerely for helping us to help kids.

This small acknowledgment doesn’t really capture our thanks, but at the end of the day, you know who you are and so do we! And so do the families and kids you have supported.

Our goal is to add many more names to this list. And maybe by touring our website you can help.
Thank you from the Heartwell Foundation.
