The Healthcare Otago Charitable Trust is an independent organisation established over twenty years ago. We apply our funds to assist a significant range of health related causes in the wider Otago region.

These include health research, improving the welfare of patients, education related to health and disability services, and supporting health-related community organisations. Over the years many generous donors have made gifts and bequests, and the Trust has distributed over $13 million to benefit communities across Otago.
