The Humpty Dumpty Foundation has been providing support for children’s health services since 1996. Humpty was originally founded to support children’s services at Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney.
Due to the overwhelming corporate and community assistance Humpty has widened its reach to support over 297 hospitals and health service centres throughout Australia.

Eligibility criteria for consideration of a donation are as follows:
Proposals for co-funding of major projects with other local sources will also be favourably considered.
All requests need to be submitted to Humpty through the completion of the Humpty Dumpty Foundation Funding Application Form. A form must be completed for each piece of equipment required. In order for your request to be considered by Humpty’s Medical Sub Committee you must ensure you have submitted the following for each request:
Minimum browser requirements are IE 9 and greater, or recent versions of Chrome, Firefox or Safari.
All applications are checked to ensure all fields and attachments (jpeg & quote) are completed in full prior to being submitted to our Medical Sub Committee for review. Forms that are incomplete will not be submitted.
Hospitals may check the status of their submissions on-line about the outcome of their request – whether they are declined or approved to appear on Humpty’s Wish List.
If approved, the item will be placed on Humpty’s Wish List that will feature on this website and in Humpty publications. Certain wishes will also be used to create an Event Wish List for events such as our Balmoral Burn and The Great Humpty Ball.
All items approved will remain on Humpty’s Wish List for a period of 12 months. If for some reason your hospital no longer requires the approved equipment you must notify Humpty as soon as possible so the equipment can be removed. Humpty’s Wish List is available for supporters to purchase at Humpty events and also via our website year round. For each item that is sold, Humpty purchases the equipment directly from the medical equipment supplier (as nominated on your Funding Form) and co-ordinates the delivery to the hospital on behalf of the donor.
If/when the equipment is sold Humpty will notify the requesting hospital contact via email of its sale. Humpty will organise a plaque in consultation with the donor to be affixed to the equipment. This plaque is posted to the hospital and must be affixed. It is paramount that the hospital informs Humpty when the equipment has been received and the donor plaque is attached. This is very important for our records and will assist us in the organisation of donor tours and visits to the recipient hospital or health service centre.
Wish List made available at HDF events and on website for donors to purchase. If equipment is donated, HDF orders it and arranges delivery according to the details supplied by the hospital on the Funding Application Form
