The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation

The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation is the charity which supports health and medical research at The Prince Charles Hospital. Established in 1986, we are charged with the responsibility to inspire a generous community to fund lifesaving and life changing health research which is tackling Australia’s most significant chronic diseases.

Almost all of us in our lifetime will be faced with the onset of chronic disease. Most of us have someone we love struggling with it today. Our desire is to do something about it. By detecting disease early, by improving treatment, recovery and rehabilitation, we can live longer and healthier lives.

Our aim is to provide more than $5M per annum to support the research teams that are focussed on the early detection, treatment and recovery from heart disease, lung disease, dementia and arthritis including improving hospital care, surgery, rehabilitation and the use of new technology.

The Common Good

While our home is located in Chermside (Brisbane, Australia) the chronic illness that we are helping to fight against threaten the lives of 80% of all Australians. These diseases know no boundary – and neither do we. Which is why we’ve launched The Common Good, a national campaign to connect generous people who care about fighting health problems with the researchers making it happen.

It’s a movement of people who want to change our destiny and ensure we have a longer and healthier life ahead of us.

The Common Good allows to not be geographically focused – because where we live is not where the cause lives. Poor health is universal and the only way to increase our effectiveness is to give more people the opportunity to be involved. To join the fight, visit
