WE ARE ON A MISSION TO ERADICATE CANCER, BY FUNDING
WORLD-CLASS RESEARCH INTO PREVENTION, DIAGNOSIS AND CURE.

YOUR SUPPORT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

1. Community Fundraising

We are a privately-funded organisation, relying on the power of the community contributing generous donations to our work, which will see Australia’s best cancer research teams equipped with the technologies and facilities they need to fast-track discoveries.

2. Funding World-Class Research

Our committee of internationally renowned cancer scientists reviews all applications for ACRF funding, to ensure only the most innovative, cutting-edge proposals receive our multi-million dollar grants at the end of every year.

3. Getting Results

The research we fund accelerates the analysis and testing of new treatment, diagnostic and preventative measures for all types of cancer. It keeps Australian scientists at the forefront of medical research and brings us ever closer to the cures.
