Donations & Bequests

We are very grateful to be generously supported by our local communities.

Community generosity has been the foundation of our hospital since the very beginning. In 1871, Dr. Samuel Reynold's vision to build a hospital to serve the district came to fruition with the support of many local people. Every year people, families, businesses and community groups still choose us to benefit from their generosity, and we warmly thank you.

The high level of care we take such pride in offering would not be possible without the incredible financial support you give.

3 Ways to Give to Mansfield District Hospital

1. Your time. Volunteer with us.

2. Your Voice. Share your unique perspectives to help us learn, improve, and celebrate.

3. Your money: We deeply appreciate your donations and bequests.

How Are Your Donations & Bequests Used?

Your donations go towards items that directly improve our patients and residents' care and overall experience. Some examples of how donations have been used include general and specialist medical equipment, amenities in the wards such as new TVs or comfortable recliners, indoor and outdoor recreation equipment for our older residents, refurbishments to our older heritage buildings, and beautiful additions to our gardens and courtyards.

You are welcome to nominate where you would like your donation to go. As an example, we recently had the family of an aged care resident donate to add to the courtyard gardens.

Our Annual Appeal

Every year we run the MDH Annual Appeal. The Appeal is traditionally launched in November and runs through to 30th June. Each year we choose a department to be the beneficiary of that year's Annual Appeal funds. Alongside required medical equipment we draw on resident and patient feedback to be guided to how their comfort and safety could be enhanced with new items or refurbishments.
