Our History


Koala Kids was founded in 2005 as a volunteer-based program of Koala Foundation to provide small things that make a difference to the lives of the 1,700 children and young people undergoing cancer treatment in Victoria and their families.
Koala Kids became part of Children’s Cancer Foundation after it merged with Koala Foundation in July 2012. In October, 2015 Koala Kids began operation as an independent charity with Deductible Gift Recipient status from the Australian Tax Office.
