The Ethel Gray Benevolent Fund distributes the generosity of Epworth employees to directly help patients, their families, or colleagues at a time of need.

The fund can be used to support:

  • transport or accommodation for visiting family
  • provision of meals or personal needs on discharge
  • cost of Epworth outpatient programs
  • pro bono surgery
  • support a colleague facing significant personal or career challenges 

Epworth employees are invited to support the fund by making a gift via their payroll. Participation is completely voluntary and every contribution counts.

Epworth VMO’s are invited to make an annual gift to the fund by contacting [email protected]

To submit a patient application for support please speak to Pastoral Care, Social Work or a Nurse Unit Manager at your site.

To submit an employee application for support please speak to your local People and Culture team.
