Donating to charities at tax time

This tax time ACRF would like to remind Australians to check the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) register and review financial documents to ensure that you are giving to transparent charities.

ACRF has received the registered charity tick. A stamp that is reflective of the standards to which ACRF proudly holds itself to. The charity tick initiative has been developed to give reassurance to donors that a charity is transparent and accountable by highlighting its presence on the ACNC Charity Register.

ACRF has awarded $129.2 million in 65 cancer research grants to 36 research institutes, universities and hospitals across Australia. Thanks to our supporters, these grants make a real impact by providing researchers across Australia access to state of the art technology which in turn speeds up research outcomes.

Throughout the year ACRF organises lab tours, openings of new facilities and the opportunity to meet the researches to allow supporters to see firsthand the impact that ACRF grants are having on research to prevent, detect and better treat cancer.

Each year we provided comprehensive details on our grant recipients and their projects. You can also read about the latest cancer research updates and outcomes of ACRF projects when they make breakthroughs.

The Australian Cancer Research Foundation is committed to funding the technology that Australian scientists need to end all types of cancer, and we want you to know where your donations go.

We are proud to make our financial reports available to you annually and reports from the last ten years are easily accessible on our website. We invite you to review them when making your decision to donate.
