Support us

The Bays has served the local community for more than 80 years and continues to uphold a long standing reputation for excellence in the provision of quality healthcare.  That reputation is based on the fundamentals of modern equipment, provision of quality services and professional caring staff. 

As a not for profit and community-owned organisation, The Bays Healthcare Group relies on the generosity of the community to help us provide the people of the Mornington Peninsula with high quality healthcare services.

Your support will allow us to keep up with the latest medical developments, purchase equipment, maintain a comfortable and supportive environment for patients and visitors to The Bays Hospital and help us ensure that quality residential aged care facilities are available to all those in need at The Bays Aged Care. 

You can either nominate a specific area of The Bays Healthcare Group you wish to support, fund a specific item on our priority needs, or give an unrestricted donation that allows The Bays to direct funds to the area of most need. The Bays has Deductible Gift Recipient status and all donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Our commitment to you is to ensure your gift will be administered and applied in accordance with your expressed wishes and duly acknowledged with our thanks.

Memorial gifts

Families often wish to remember the life of a loved one or special person in a way that has an ongoing benefit for the lives of others.

Alternatively, when making funeral arrangements, advise your Funeral Director that you would like donations, in lieu of flowers, to The Bays. Your Funeral Director will contact us to request ‘memorial envelopes’ for the service.

Add special meaning to your celebration by inviting your guests to give a donation to The Bays in lieu of a personal gift to you.  Celebration gifts to The Bays have a positive impact on the lives of many people.  The Bays can provide you with personalised donation cards to accompany your invitation or alternatively donations can be made online or by mail using the downloadable donation form. For further information, please contact The Bays on 03 5970 5339.

Display a donation collection tin

If you work in a shop or business and want to help support the work of The Bays, why not consider our donation tins?  If you don’t have much time, placing a donation tin on your counter or in your reception area can be very rewarding with very little effort. Placing a tin in a strategic location can raise a surprising amount of money to support The Bays Healthcare Group to provide the best possible healthcare to the Mornington Peninsula community. All you have to do is think of the best place to put your tin.

Alternatively, if you sign up as a tin collector, your role will be delivering tins to local shops and businesses in your area, and returning them to us when they are full.  For more information, or to volunteer as a tin collector, call 03 5970 5339 or email fundraising@thebays.com.au
