Mater Foundation

Mater Foundation challenges, inspires and engages people, organisations and businesses to partner with the Mater hospitals and Mater Research, to extend the boundaries of health care and medical research.

The Mater Hospitals were established by the Sisters of Mercy in Brisbane in 1906 and now care for more than half a million babies, children and adults each year. The Mater is committed to providing compassionate health care with an emphasis on the founding values of the Sisters of Mercy.

Donations to the foundation help purchase life-saving medical equipment, improve patient care and ensure our research teams continue to find better ways to diagnose, treat and ultimately cure life-threatening diseases.

Mater now operates seven hospitals, delivering exceptional care to children, mothers, babies and adults.
