Starship Foundation's involvement (page creator)

Starship is New Zealand’s national children’s hospital. There are nearly 120,000 patient visits to Starship Children’s Health every year by children from all over New Zealand.

The Starship Foundation is a social-profit organisation that raises funds so Starship Children’s Health can better care for these young patients.

The Starship Foundation’s vision is to create meaningful and magical opportunities that enrich the health of every young New Zealander.

Donations are extra to Government funding and provide for initiatives such as Starship’s National Air Ambulance Service which brings children from all over New Zealand to Starship for life-saving care, as well as refurbishing older wards, new technology and medical equipment, vital research, boosted family support, staff training and community outreach projects to keep children out of hospital.

Starship Foundation exists through the generosity of the New Zealand public and leading organisations that lovingly donate money and/or time to assist Starship to remain at the forefront of paediatric care.

About us

The Starship Foundation relies on the generosity of its donors to help them fund items from the hospital. These can be the smallest comfort items for patients and families through to vital lifesaving equipment, and community support services to prevent children becoming ill.
