Become a Guardian

Never underestimate the power of a small group of people to give back childhood.  There are roughly 200 Guardians supporting the Children’s Hospital Trust.  This is indeed a tiny percentage of the South African population who come together as the largest private donor to change the face of child healthcare in the country.These individuals each give in excess of R5000 per annum.  Together, all of their generous donations are allocated to a prioritised project supported by the Children’s Hospital Trust (unless otherwise requested).

As a Guardian, you will be sure to see the impact of your contribution.  In 2014 alone, Guardians raised over a fifth of the Trust’s entire annual budget.  This substantial collection has been allocated to the upgrade and expansion of the Paediatric Intensive care Unit at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital.

Once you become a Guardian, you will be sent regular updates regarding your investment as well as be invited to exclusive events held specifically for Guardians.  For those who cannot attend functions, you can also track the impact of your giving by joining the Guardians Facebook Group.
