Who we are

It started with a gift

The establishment of the foundation started with a bequest from the late Gordon Wyndham McKeown, whose family had moved to the area in 1900. His bequest included a house, an art collection and shares valued at $770,000.

Gordon’s family owned a bakery and much of the land in Watton Street, Werribee. Gordon was a Director of the Conservatory of Music at University of Melbourne.

An engaged and involved Board of Directors and WHF’s dedicated team work to build community and private partnerships, to raise vital funds and awareness for the continued development of health promotion, research, education, equipment, facilities and special projects at Werribee Mercy Hospital, by doing so we are ensuring the Wyndham community has the hospital services that our community needs.

The WHF is a tax-deductible gift recipient (DGR 2 status), which can receive tax deductible donations. It is established as a Health Promotion Charity under the Australian Tax Office law.  In addition, WHF is registered with the ACNC.
