GOSH Charity Fundraising Team

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity (GOSH charity)

In April 2021 GOSH charity launched a new fundraising strategy which set out an ambitious pathway to emerge out of the pandemic stronger and grow our sustainable net income.

In particular the need to raise £300m for a state of the art Children’s Cancer Centre saw the launch of the biggest appeal in the charity’s history, the ‘Build it. Beat it’ appeal, which has already achieved pledges totalling more than £135m that will be realised over the next five years. In just two years – across 2021/22 and 2022/23 - we’ve made significant progress and our net income has exceeded our projections by £13.3m overall, all whilst investing to grow our fundraising team and activities. 2022/23 was our most successful year in terms of income in our history as a charity, hitting £107m. This was supported by an incredible fundraising income of £99m, up 41% from £69.8m in 2021/22 and 10.6% against budget of £89.5m. Of this £67.3m was net income, compared to £50m in 2020/21, and we finished the last financial year up in almost every area of our portfolio. These incredible results have been driven by a phenomenal level of teamwork, ambition and collaboration.
