The Taranaki Health Foundation is a charitable organisation founded in 1998 in partnership with the Taranaki District Health Board. The shared vision of the partners is to enable the best possible healthcare via fundraising for key projects that will make a significant difference to our regional community.

Since late 2013, the Foundation has received over nine million dollars in pledges and in June 2016 we completed a 3.6 million dollar campaign for a new Angiography suite at Taranaki Base Hospital. These stellar results would certainly not be possible without the generous support of Business Sponsors and donations from the Taranaki community.

We have a range of exciting projects, events and engagement opportunities on offer so please consider supporting the Foundation today - click on HOW TO CONTRIBUTE or CURRENT PROJECTS to see how you can support us today!

Thank you Taranaki, we did it! 3.6 million dollars raised for the new Angiography Suite. Check out the latest DVD below and an official update here WE HEART TARANAKI
