SMHS Staff Programs

Take advantage of one or both of the Spinnaker-SMHS giving programs

SMHS Staff can support Spinnaker through two programs:

SMHS staff can play for as little as $1 per week which is conveniently deducted through payroll. The best part is that you will be supporting patient-centred medical research in south metro Perth!

A fortnightly deduction, or your choice, that directly supports research projects at SMHS hospitals and affiliated campuses.

Any donation, big of small, makes a huge difference to what we are able to achieve as a foundation. We receive no government funding and rely on the generosity of our local community, and of course from SMHS staff.



SMHS Staff Lottery for Spinnaker

Previously named ‘The Freo Doctor Lottery’, SMHS Staff Lottery for Spinnaker awards $500 to one lucky winner every fortnight.

SMHS staff can play for as little as $1 per week which is conveniently deducted through payroll. The best part is that you will be supporting patient-centred medical research in south metro Perth!

The staff lottery has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for research since 1999 and is available to all employees of the South Metropolitan Health Service.

You can sign up by filling out the form above. Remember the more you pay the more you play and it’s all going to a good cause!



SMHS Staff Workplace Giving

Employees of the South Metropolitan Health Service have the opportunity to conveniently contribute a portion of their pay each cycle to support local medical research at their hospitals.

To those who are already a part of the program: THANK YOU! You are making sure that impactful and transformational research has the opportunity to improve the treatments and outcomes of your patients and the community we serve. Without the support of the SMHS community many of the important research projects granted by Spinnaker each year would not be able to happen.

Spinnaker Health Research Foundation is SMHS’s primary charitable foundation and has been supporting research since 1996. The foundation is based at both Fiona Stanley and Fremantle Hospitals but serves the whole SMHS community. Spinnaker awards up to 15 research grants every year which are selected based on our community and hospital needs. These translational research projects can directly impact the treatments available within your hospital.

How does it work?

For as little as $2.00 each week you can support your patients and your colleagues and make sure that SMHS is at the leading edge of health delivery.

The Spinnaker workplace giving program allows you to make a regular donation in each pay cycle that is recorded on your payslip from SMHS. It is easy and simple and can be stopped at any time.

Donations over $2.00 are tax deductible. Begin the sign up process by filling out the form below.
