About the Humpty Dumpty Foundation

Having now raised over $60 million and continuing to make a significant impact on the lives of sick and injured children at children’s hospitals and health service centres in every state of Australia, the Humpty Dumpty Foundation was established over 27 years ago by Founder and Executive Chairman, Paul Francis OAM.

The Humpty Dumpty Foundation has enjoyed long-time support from its Patron, television journalist Ray Martin AM, Olympian Jane Flemming OAM – Ambassador/Board Member and Wallaby great Phil Kearns AM, Ambassador and Founder of the Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn.

Through annual fund-raising initiatives including the Good Egg lunch, Balmoral Burn and the Great Humpty Ball along with the support of generous individual and corporate donors, in 2016 the Humpty Dumpty Foundation delivered over 500 pieces of medical equipment to hospitals across Australia.

One of the Humpty Dumpty Foundation's breakthrough fundraising methods was the creation of Humpty’s Wish List in 2001. Each piece of essential medical equipment that appears on the regularly updated Wish List has been requested specifically by the hospital to meet an immediate need.

The medical equipment requested is stringently assessed by the Humpty Dumpty Foundation’s medical sub-committee made up of senior medical administrators and clinical specialists, before it is added to Humpty’s Wish List.

The Humpty Dumpty Foundation has also provided funding for numerous special projects including a part-time Nurse Educator for training in emergency paediatrics, a part-time Bio Mechanical Engineer and weekly visits by the “Clown Doctors” and the magical Happy Gardens (which encourage and promote healing).

To date, 318 hospitals across the nation have benefited from the life-saving medical equipment received specifically to care for children and babies provided by the Humpty Dumpty Foundation and its amazing “Good Egg” supporters.

Locals, community and business organisations interested in supporting the Humpty Dumpty Foundation and their local hospital by donating a piece of medical equipment or by making a donation can view the wish-list at www.humpty.com.au or contact the Humpty Dumpty Foundation on 02 9419 2410.
