Hush Foundation

Transforming the culture of healthcare with arts & kindness



Our friends at Macquarie Group Foundation are matching x2 any donations made this weekend as part of their Macquarie Group Foundation Week employee fundraising.

We have until midnight on Sunday 25 October (yes, today and tomorrow!) to raise $5,000 which will turn into $15000! And we know we can do it with your help.

Your generous donations will be a huge help towards all the exciting plans we're working on for the rest of this year and next. Have a look below to find out more!

Thank you for your support.

Thank you so much for supporting the Hush Foundation. People like you are the reason we have a history of over 20 years of support.
The Hush Foundation works to transform the culture of healthcare through specially composed calming music, health plays and kindness initiatives aimed at improving patient and staff safety, and wellbeing.

Due to the impact of COVID-19 and the requirements for physical distancing, the way Hush Foundation operates has changed.  To manage this change, Hush Foundation needs your support.

Key areas of need for 2020:

Adapting programs and support to the new operating environment

Hush Foundation is adapting its programs and resources to the new COVID operating environment and is examining online platforms as a means of continuing to work with healthcare organisations to deliver the Hush message of patient and staff safety and wellbeing.

Your support will help us create online learning modules for hospitals and healthcare services about improving communication, creating psychologically safe environments and promoting kindness strategies in the workplace.

Completion of Hush 20 Parenthood album

The first Hush music album was created more than 20 years ago to bring calm and optimism to patients and their families in stressful hospital and healthcare environments.  This need is relevant now more than ever, and our newest album aims to support parents. 

With an esteemed line up of Australian female artists including Kate Miller Heidke, Megan Washington, Mama Kin, Emily Wurramara, Naomi Crellin, and the talents of our friends at the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, this is one of our most ambitious albums yet! Your support to bring this important album about parenthood to life will help with delays imposed by COVID.

Free resources for frontline medical staff

What we’ve learned during this crisis is that acts of kindness are needed and that they are surprisingly easy to do. So far, the Hush Foundation has shared the #kindnessworkshere message providing free posters and discussion resources so workplaces can progress their kindness efforts and focus on self care.

Your support will help us continue to provide free resources to hospitals and healthcare organisations that need our support.
