Welcome to The OTIS Foundation

Truly experience the gift of charitable giving this Christmas by helping The OTIS Foundation to offer retreat accommodation, at no cost, to people dealing with breast cancer and their loved ones.

Each $50 will allow The OTIS Foundation to provide one night at one of its retreats to someone who needs it most, by covering the costs associated with cleaning and linen.

The OTIS Foundation provides retreat accommodation at no cost to those dealing with the challenges of breast cancer. 

We aim to provide immediate relief to people who need a short-term break away.

The not-for-profit charity organisation was proudly born in the Central Victorian township of Bendigo and has undergone a rapid and exciting expansion over recent years.

The hundreds of guests who take advantage of The OTIS Foundation's retreat accommodation each year consider the organisation an amazing gift at a time when they need it the most.

The Foundation currently has properties in Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, Queensland and Northern Territory and is strongly committed to ongoing growth.

OTIS retreats offer time out to relax, reconnect and regroup for those dealing with the challenges that come alongside this serious illness.

Each retreat has been donated for its location, in a beautiful environment which allows guests to draw on nature for strength and comfort.

Anyone who has faced the challenges of dealing with breast cancer is eligible to stay at an OTIS retreat, along with their partner, family or friends.

To find out more watch our video below for an overview of the positive impact an OTIS stay has on its guests. 

Kez’s Hideaway is an amazing homestead being built for The OTIS Foundation near Bendigo, Victoria, and in memory of Kerri Gray.

In March 2011, local Bendigo builder, Paul Gray, lost his wife to breast cancer. Kerri (or Kez as she was known) planted the seed for Kez’s Hideaway with Paul, telling him that he should do something, perhaps by building a house for the OTIS Foundation.

Paul; generous land donors, the Campbell family; the OTIS Foundation and the a huge range of supporters are now making Kez’s vision a reality through the build of "Kez's Hideaway"- with construction close to completion we hope to welcome our first guests in May 2016.
