Countdown to RBWH Foundation Giving Day!

Wednesday 8 June 2022

Mark Wednesday 15 June in your calendar because the third RBWH Foundation Giving Day 2022 is an event you will not want to miss!

It’s the day Queenslanders rally to show gratitude to Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) healthcare heroes for their tireless work, excellent patient care and life-saving research.

Every dollar donated by 15 June will again be doubled this year, for twice the impact, thanks to the generosity of RBWH Foundation corporate supporters and generous individuals.


It’s also an opportunity to have some fun!

Help our Giving Day Gratitude tree grow:

Visit the RBWH Ground Floor Foyer to read the beautiful messages of support and gratitude being left on the Giving Day Gratitude Tree for RBWH healthcare heroes. Here is just a sample:

“Forever grateful for wonderful Doctors and staff of the Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Clinic. Particular thanks to the very caring nurses, Denise and Karen in the Centralised Specialist Outpatients Services. Jill C.”

You can also leave your own message! 


A ruby make-over for Brisbane city:

Look out for the RBWH Giving Day banners on the Caxton Street overpass, outbound, and on the Story Bridge from Monday 13 June. The Story Bridge will be swathed in RUBY lighting on Tuesday June 14 and Wednesday June 15.
