A history of caring for those in need

Founded by the Sisters of Charity in 1857, St Vincent’s has grown to achieve world-wide recognition for innovative and excellent healthcare. At the same time, upholding the values of compassionate care for those in need, from all walks of life.

In 1984, a lack of funding threatened transplantation medicine at the Hospital. Subsequently, the St Vincent’s Endowment Fund was established to ensure the Hospital could continue to provide excellent care. All Evolution Giving Circle donations support the Endowment Fund.

Strategically invested, the Endowment Fund is a self-sustaining source of funding for St Vincent’s. Importantly, it’s earnings are made available to St Vincent’s Hospitals and Facilities in NSW through our annual grants program.

Endowment grants today

Each year, more than $1 million from the returns of the Endowment Fund are awarded and distributed to our hardworking clinicians and staff for a range of urgently needed projects including up to date life-saving equipment, specialist nurse education opportunities, practical clinician-led research, and improved patient comforts.

These grants only exist thanks to many years of support from our annual Endowment donors, now with added contributions from our young Evolution donors.

Be in it for good

As a result of limitations to government funds, annual Endowment Grants are vital to ensuring our hospitals remain at the forefront of patient care.

Evolution Giving Circle donors will join a select group of emerging leaders who value investing in the future of healthcare. Additionally, they share a close relationship with each other, along with the upcoming generation of doctors and nurses at St Vincent’s. Please consider making an annual or monthly donation and join our Circle.
