At ACRF we believe a world without cancer is possible. Join this incredible community and be connected for a cancer-free future.
Why monthly donations are so important:
As an ACRF Luminary, you will hear first hand from world class researchers about the impact their research is having globally. Join us at exclusive Luminary events including the chance to see research in action at a tour of a working cancer research lab. As a national organisation, ACRF hosts lab tours in research facilities across Australia.
Your regular gift to ACRF will be processed on the 15th of each month. Automated donations can be set up via BPAY, EFT or automatically deducted from your nominated bank account or credit card.
We will notify you to confirm when your first regular gift has been processed. We will issue your annual tax-deductible receipt within the first two weeks of July.
We will provide you with regular updates on ground-breaking research that has been made possible due to your generosity.
With the impact of cancer being felt by so many, regular giving can be an opportunity to pay tribute in honour of a loved one.
Your monthly donation will give hope to all Australians diagnosed with cancer, to ensure that one day we will be able to outsmart this disease.
ACRF Luminaries are a community connected for a cancer-free future. A few of our Luminaries have kindly shared their story to inspire others. You can read their stories here.
Regular Giver since 2007, donating in memory of his grandmother.
“At any given time, I can remind myself that I am preventing other people from heading down the same no-through road.”
Regular Giver since 2002, giving in memory of her cousin.
“I lost my cousin Maryanne who passed when she was only 42 years old. Actually she was diagnosed with the disease and then went into remission only for it to emerge very quickly afterwards in a bad way.”
Regular Giver since 2011, giving in memory of his wife.
“Danielle inspired so many during her brave fight against cancer. To honour her memory, I have made a life-time commitment to actively support Australian researchers in their search for the cures.”
What your donations have achieved
Cervical cancer vaccine
We gave initial seed funding to Professor Ian Frazer’s research into the cervical cancer (HPV). Over 150 million doses of vaccine have been delivered worldwide to date.
The pill that melts away cancer
Our long term support of cancer research at WEHI has led to a treatment that melts away certain advanced forms of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. It has been approved for clinical use in the US, European Union and Australia and is being trialled for other types of cancer.
Personalised cancer diagnosis
In 2015, we awarded $10 million seed funding to an ambitious cancer proteome project that aims to provide each cancer patient a personalised treatment plan within 36 hours. This will improve treatment outcomes and help avoid unnecessary treatments.
Zero childhood cancer
We are one of the founding partners of the initiative that will tackle the most serious cases of infant, childhood and adolescent cancer in Australia. It is a key step towards the program vision of one day helping to cure 100% of children with cancer.
