Mater Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that connects community and philanthropic support to Mater Health and Mater Research – leading healthcare providers in Brisbane, Australia. The foundation is part of Mater Health, a group established by the Sisters of Mercy in 1906. Today, Mater comprises several hospitals, health centres, a world-class medical research institute and pathology and pharmacy businesses, which aim to provide exceptional care with an emphasis on the founding values of the Sisters of Mercy.
As Mater Foundation’s philanthropic activities continued to grow, its existing spreadsheet-based planning processes could not provide enough control and visibility to help it reach its future goals.
Hospitals and research centres across Brisbane rely on Mater Foundation’s fundraising efforts to support their important work. With a target of distributing AUD 20 million in funds per year by 2021, the organisation needed a solution to enhance governance and fine-tune its financial plans to help it achieve this ambitious goal.
