Contribute to cancer research

Every major advancement in cancer detection, prevention, and treatment has been aided by research.

Research discovers new ways to treat cancer more effectively, diagnose cancer earlier, and improve quality of life for people affected.

Our Research Grant Program is funded entirely by the community. Thanks to the support of people like you, we're proud to be one of the largest funders of independent cancer research in WA. In 2016, we're funding $4 million dollars worth of outstanding local research - with your help, we can continue to increase this.

Research funding units start from $2500 and you can select from a wide range of world-class research projects taking place right here in WA.

When supporting our Research Program you will receive:

  • Recognition of your funding in a family, estate, deceased loved one, company or individual's name in our annual Research Program booklet
  •  A certificate recognising your support
  •  An invitation to our annual Research Awards Lunch where you'll have the opportunity to meet the researchers carrying out the research you're generously funding and be acknowledged for your contribution
  •  Acknowledgement in our Annual Review
  •  A tax deductible receipt for each contribution
