Collection units


Collection units are available for businesses, groups or individuals who wish to fundraise for Monash Children’s Hospital.

Fundraisers are asked to complete and sign a Collection Unit Application and Agreement form.

Once your application has been received and endorsed, you will be issued with an ‘Authority to Fundraise’ letter and your collection units will be available for collection from the Monash Health Foundation office at Monash Medical Centre in Clayton.

100% of funds collected in the collection unit/s must be submitted to the Monash Health Foundation. All proceeds raised from the collection unit/s can be forwarded to the Monash Health Foundation in the form of a bank cheque, personal cheque or money order made out to Monash Health Foundation, or a reconciliation form with credit card details. Monash Health Foundation will issue a receipt on receipt of the funds.  All funds will be allocated in full to Monash Children’s Hospital.

The Fundraising Act 1998 (Vic) has strict guidelines and requires collection unit/s to meet certain criteria, including:

  • The collection unit/s must be securely fastened to a counter/ bench with the chain attached;
  • That two persons be present at any opening of the collection unit/s, jointly count the donations and jointly sign a document confirming the total amount counted;
  • Please note as this unit is an official registered charity collection unit, a statutory declaration or police report is required for lost or stolen units. It is an offence to retain collection units for personal use.

If you have any questions about fundraising for Monash Children’s Hospital and the use of collection units, please contact the Monash Health Foundation on (03) 9594 2700 or email
