The ACRF has since awarded almost $80 million in grants for world-class cancer research, a truly incredible feat. cancer research anniversary cakeFurthermore, thanks to our always careful financial management, the ACRF is proud to be able to say that every donation dollar we receive provides the funding for these grants.
