Cancer affects a large number of Australians, both directly and indirectly. One in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85. An estimated 11,000 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in Western Australia alone this year, joining the 75,000 people living with cancer in our state. However there is some good news. The survival rate for many common cancers has increased by 30% in the past two decades, and we know that one in three cancers is preventable.
Cancer Council WA is well established and committed to beating cancer in all its forms, in every possible way. By working with us, you can join in working towards a cancer free future and share the benefits of Cancer Council WA's strong reputation in the community and our dedication to the cancer cause.
We would like to sincerely thank our current corporate partners for their support and commitment to Cancer Council WA.
How you can work with us
Cancer Council WA offers a range of ways in which corporate organisations can partner with us and get involved.
Corporate partnerships with Cancer Council WA are individually and uniquely designed to be mutually beneficial, helping your organisation achieve your marketing and corporate social responsibility objectives and helping us progress in reducing the impact of cancer on our community.
This may include:
- Corporate partnerships (sponsorships) - both financial and in-kind (pro-bono)
- Workplace giving and matched giving
- Cause related marketing
- Event engagement/ participation/ sponsorship
- Corporate donations
- Corporate volunteering
Corporate partnerships (sponsorships) - both financial and in-kind (pro-bono)
Traditional sponsorship of a Cancer Council WA program, service or fundraising event, through a cash lump-sum payment or an in-kind donation to offset costs, entitles your organisation to leverage our intellectual property and activate commercial opportunities.
Sponsorship can increase awareness, build your brand credibility, engage customers or other stakeholders, and ultimately enhance sales. Cancer Council WA has a well-regarded brand as well as expertise in developing unique partnerships. Sponsorships start from $10,000 per annum. We will work closely with you and your organisation to develop individual partnership packages and tailor the sponsorship to meeting your marketing and corporate social responsibility objectives.
In-kind and any other pro-bono support can be valuable contributions to our fundraising efforts. When this support enables us to offset a budgeted expense it has real cash-saving benefits, enabling us to direct a greater percentage of funds towards fighting cancer.

Workplace giving and matched giving
Workplace giving enables employees to give directly to Cancer Council WA through automated payroll deductions. It's one of the simplest, most tax efficient and cost-effective ways to donate. Corporate organisations can engage and motivate staff by providing an integrated staff engagement program, including matching workplace giving funds donated by employees.
An organisation can experience the following benefits when they are engaged in workplace giving;
- Increased staff morale
- Increased staff retention
- Promote visible interaction with the community
- Promote a positive perception of your business, and support the choice of your employees.

Cause related marketing
Cause related marketing (CRM) is when a company with a product, image, or service in the market builds a partnership with a non-profit organisation or charity for mutual benefit.
These campaigns are an incredibly successful model of corporate partnership, and can be instrumental in enhancing your brand, stimulating sales and market share. It also publicly demonstrates your organisation's commitment to helping reduce the impact of cancer in the West Australian community.
A cause related marketing campaign with your organisation may also align your products, services, or organisations brand with one of Cancer Council WA's many fundraising events.
If you would like more information on our cause related marketing program please contact the Corporate Relations Team on 08 9212 4333 or email.
Cancer Council WA receives $7 from every UV and Heat Awareness course registration.
Event engagement/ participation/ sponsorship
Our events provide your organisation with the opportunity to become a sponsor or to engage your team and clients.
Event engagement can take on a number of forms - from taking a box of merchandise or hosting an event, through to event sponsorship.

Organisations can choose to offer staff time off each year to volunteer, or arrange a team day for volunteering.
