Through our cultural initiatives and community activities, Ashintosh raises funds not only for its Teddy Bear Hospital program and Innovation Grants, but we also generate funds towards specific charities.
Since 2010, Queensland Medical Orchestra and Choir has contributed to charities with proceeds from their concerts. Just to name a few, these included community groups such as the Hear and Say Centre, medical charities such as the Cure for Life Foundation, local services such as the Doctor's Health Advisory Service and international disaster relief such as the Red Cross HaiyanTyphoon Appeal in 2013.
2015 was a very successful year, where we raised over $15000, and presented our donation to the following charities:
Legacy is a charity providing services to Australian families suffering financially and socially after the incapacitation or death of a spouse or parent, during or after their defence force service.
