About Us

We are a not-for-profit foundation designed to address the health challenges of Central Queensland.

Our problem is vast

The reality is...

There is a significant need for funding outside of government to enable a range of vital support programs that would otherwise not be available to patients and their families at local public hospitals and community health facilities in Central Queensland.

Our community is dispersed, with 228,000 of us living across 117,000 square km of land in our diverse and wonderful region. This spread brings its own unique health challenges.

Whether you’re in Biloela, The Gemfields, Emerald, Gladstone, Blackwater, Rockhampton,  Yeppoon/Capricorn Coast or anywhere in between, CQShines Foundation will be supporting vital health services to benefit you and your loved ones.

Our Mission

We are committed to the highest standards in fundraising practice.

CQShines Foundation recognises the importance of trust. When you make the generous decision to support CQShines Foundation, you can be confident that we will keep our promise to you.

Together with your help, we can make a lasting and meaningful contribution to the health and wellbeing of our loved ones, the community and future generations of Central Queenslanders.
