COVID 19 – Provided life saving support to your local hospital
The Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation has a long history of supporting hospitals throughout Victoria. In fact, the Foundation has just dedicated its 64th living memorial, named in honour of a member/s of Victoria Police who died protecting our community. Each and every hospital project aims to do just that – remember lives by saving others.
In March 2020, we launched an appeal that ran until 31 May so that Victorians who are able to, could make a contribution to help buy vital equipment for their LOCAL hospital.
100% of the donations were given to the hospitals nominated to support their lifesaving work during the COVID health crisis.
Our doctors, nurses and allied health staff are working hard to manage increasing demand on our hospitals, including our emergency departments and intensive care units. Your donation will help us access additional lifesaving equipment and resources at this challenging time. Thank you for your kind support.

- Over 60 public hospitals across Victoria were nominated by donors and those hospitals received 100% of those donations.
- In addition we sold over 1,000 Constable t Bears during the period of the appeal and customers could also nominate a public hospital to receive the proceeds of those sales.
Support our community and public hospital projects
While the COVID appeal is now closed you can continue to support our community and public hospital projects. These projects are dedicated to Victoria Police Members that have died in the line of duty.
Donations $2 and over are tax deductible.
