HBF Community

HBF is proudly West Australian. We're committed to giving back to our community and bettering the health of all West Australians.
Enriching the lives of our employees

Our people lend a hand through volunteer work and, often, reach into their own pockets to support causes that are close to their hearts.

Giving back to the community

We look for ways to help improve the health of West Australians through our Community Partnerships Program and local Community Grants.

Improving the health of WA

We support initiatives that will make a tangible and lasting difference to the health of West Australians.

I received a life-saving blood transfusion after a severe car accident. I never thought I would need a blood transfusion but because of donors like those from HBF, I survived.

What is the difference between the Community Partnerships & Grants?

Our Community Partnership awards significant funding (up to $300,000, over three years) to one recipient annually. We award multiple Community Grants (once-only funding up to $10,000) throughout the year.

What initiatives would qualify for Community Partnership Funding?

We are looking for opportunities to support and partner with initiatives that make a lasting and tangible positive difference to the health of West Australians. Examples may include a technological advancement or a health-focused catalytic program that improves quality of life for Western Australians.

 What initiatives would qualify for Community Grants funding?

We support a range of initiatives, of all sizes, that are making a positive difference to the health of West Australians. Funding surfing lessons for kids with autism to equipment for mobile ear testing clinics and a wheelchair friendly garden in our regional areas are just some examples.
