WHAT IS BDCUGH FUNDRAISING INC.?

History

The Association was established as a Community/Business Partnership in 2008.

It is a community business partnership between Berrima District Credit Union (BDCU) and a committee of residents and businesspeople in the Goulburn-Mulwaree Shire.

Goulburn district is a unique community comprising a host of rural, regional and town activities.

Community life and welfare is dependent to a large extent on the work and care of Goulburn Base Hospital & Community Health.

The hospital’s needs are extensive and we cannot rely totally on Government to fulfil those needs.

The Committee

The Association is administered by a volunteer committee, which is comprised of BDCU representatives, local residents and volunteers who use their resources for the benefit of the Foundation.

Aims

• To assist in the refurbishment of Goulburn Base Hospital and provide support for other community health facilities as required.

• To identify and implement health welfare support services for the Goulburn-Mulwaree community

Fundraising Goals

There are many items on a hospital wish-list. The Foundation is dedicated to providing these wish-list items as long as is necessary and expects that they will expand, change and require updating.
