Our Mission

The aim of Cork University Hospital Charity is to source funding through philanthropy in order to provide a wide range of life-changing and life-saving equipment and services for patients attending Cork University Hospital.

Our Work

From Ballyvaughan to Baltimore, from Dingle to Dunmore East, people everywhere are invested in ensuring that Cork University Hospital’s facilities are the best they can be.

Since 2012, we have gathered all that fantastic support in one place – the CUH Charity. Our aim is simple – to provide the staff and patients at CUH with all the support and extra financing they need.

By working hand-in-hand with the management and health care experts at CUH and our donors and community partners, we are able to identify the unique needs of the hospital and provide much-needed financial support.

Our focus is on raising funds for the purchase of state-of-the art equipment and for the enhancement of the life-saving services provided by every department.

We organise a selection of focused appeals, a calendar overflowing with unique events, ample opportunities for workplace and school fundraising, and offer a wide range of other ways to give.
