We raise and distribute funds to help deliver the best possible healthcare
in the ‘Top of the South’


Welcome to the Care Foundation

The Care Foundation is a partnership with Nelson Marlborough Health to identify and fund key health needs at both Wairau and Nelson hospitals and in the communities of the Marlborough, Nelson and Tasman Region.

Funding vital initiatives and enhancements simply wouldn’t be possible without the continuing generous support of the people in our region. Your donations will provide the extra services and medical equipment that the Government is unable to fund, which are distributed to meet a great variety of needs in the community.

These needs range from supplying extra comfy new chairs for parents in our maternity suites, to providing highly-specialised medical equipment, seed funding for developing future Patent Centered Care technologies
and even prize money for the Health Innovation Awards.
