About the Humpty Dumpty Foundation

Having now raised well over $60 million and continuing to make a significant impact on the lives of sick and injured children in hospitals and health service centres in every state of Australia, the Humpty Dumpty Foundation was established over 28 years ago by Founder and Executive Chairman, Paul Francis OAM.  

The Humpty Dumpty Foundation has enjoyed long-time support from its Patron, television journalist Ray Martin AM, Olympian Jane Flemming OAM – Ambassador/Board Member and Wallaby great Phil Kearns AM - Ambassador and Founder of the Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn.

Through annual fundraising initiatives including the Good Egg lunch, Balmoral Burn and the Great Humpty Ball along with the support of generous individual and corporate donors, in 2017 the Humpty Dumpty Foundation delivered around 500 pieces of medical equipment to hospitals across Australia.  

One of the Humpty Dumpty Foundation's breakthrough fundraising methods was the creation of ‘Humpty’s Wish List’ in 2001.  Each piece of essential medical equipment that appears on the regularly updated Wish List has been requested specifically by the hospital to meet an immediate need.  The medical equipment requested is stringently assessed by the Humpty’s medical sub-committee which comprises of senior medical administrators, clinical specialists and other officials, before it is added to ‘Humpty’s Wish List’. 

To date, over 370 hospitals across the nation have benefited from the life-saving medical equipment, specifically to care for children and babies, provided by the Humpty Dumpty Foundation and its amazing “Good Egg” supporters.   

Locals, community and business organisations interested in supporting the Humpty Dumpty Foundation and their local hospital by donating a piece of medical equipment or by making a donation can view the wish list at or contact the Humpty Dumpty Foundation on 02 9419 2410.
