Our regular givers are a powerful group of supporters who believe that a world without cancer is possible. Together they are taking action to make it happen, and we are incredibly grateful for their support.
Our regular givers are often surprised to realise the difference they have made. Their monthly donations accumulate over time into an amount that truly has the power to save lives and bring hope to cancer patients and their families. When they give together, real progress is possible.
Regular giving with the ACRF is usually processed on the 15th of every month, via an automated donation from your bank account or credit card. However, we are very happy to accommodate any preferences you might have for an alternative donation frequency. Feel free to speak with us about your circumstances so that we can help find the best option for you.
We will notify you to confirm when your first regular gift has been processed. Please note, this notification will not be your tax-deductible donation receipt. Your official tax-deductible receipt will be sent in July, and will represent your total contribution to world-class cancer research for the financial year. Please let us know if you prefer to receive this annual tax receipt via email or post.
As a valued regular giver you will receive updates about the research we are funding, as well as information about upcoming events, including exclusive laboratory tours of the research centres located near you. This way you will be able to witness the impact of your generous monthly donations that are accelerating discoveries in cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
Many of our regular givers dedicate their monthly donations to a loved one who may have bravely survived cancer, who is currently being treated for cancer, or who has tragically passed away from this devastating disease.
For these regular givers, we set up a special memorial fund within our system, so that, at any given time, we will be able to tell how much they have contributed in honour of that special someone.
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.
