An Extraordinary Donation!

On the 18th December 2023, our Deputy CEO Nerissa Wade had the honour of receiving from AMA Queensland Foundation’s Chair Dr Dilip Dhupelia, an extraordinary donation of $173,780.

Beddown is the recipient of the Foundation’s fundraising efforts via their 2023 ‘End of Financial Year’  Appeal, and Charity Gala held last month where Beddown’s Founder Norm McGillivray shared the story of Beddown with the Foundation’s members and associates. As the charitable arm of AMA Queensland, the Foundation brings together medical colleagues and the business community to deliver vital services outside those catered for by the public health system.

Realising a shared vision between both organisations that aligns the basic human rights of shelter and healthcare for people sleeping rough, the Foundation has purposefully raised monies that will significantly enhance Beddown’s mission to provide a health and wellbeing response to assist people who are sleeping rough through targetted supports. Beddown continues to fundraise for a dedicated venue in Ipswich that will provide a safe space for people sleeping rough.

Please join us in thanking the AMA Queensland Foundation that has worked together to achieve this phenomenal donation and we look forward to sharing details soon about the outcomes Beddown achieves thanks to the AMA Queensland Foundation’s generosity.

If you, your business or philanthropic organisation would also like to partner with Beddown as we work towards opening a dedicated space in Ipswich to support people sleeping rough, please reach out as we would love to hear from you!
