The Gift

Greg Poche and Kay van Norton Poche

The Gift

The Melbourne Poche Centre for Indigenous Health was founded in 2014 through amazing generosity of Mr Greg Poche AO and his wife Kay Van Norton Poche. We intend to grow the Poche’s gift through the philanthropy of others. We, like many others, are truly inspired by Greg and Kay Poche’s generosity and commitment to Indigenous health. It is our hope that in setting such an outstanding example, their gift will encourage others to make their own contribution to improving the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
Greg and I believe that in giving through the universities the best thing that we can do is work towards the future. Kay van Norton Poche

Philanthropy is helping close the health gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
