Great fundraising ideas for schools during National Science Week!

National Science Week is just around the corner (August 10-18) and we’ve got some great fundraising ideas for schools looking to help in the fight against cancer!

Australian scientists are among the best and brightest in the world, and we at the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) are proud to support their vital work into new treatments and cures for cancer.

Your school can help us support these scientists by becoming involved in a Schools Against Cancer event! By holding a Schools Against Cancer event this National Science Week, your school community can help fund the next major breakthroughs in cancer science!

If you would like to get involved, here are some fundraising ideas for schools that you might like use, or brainstorm some of your own, to raise funds and awareness for cancer research.

National Science Week fundraising ideas for schools:

• Hold a Scientists & Superheroes dress-up day (because at the ACRF, they’re one and the same!).

• Conduct some fun science experiments in your classrooms. (The ACRF can also provide a range of experiments using balloons, to demonstrate the properties of electricity, magnetism and energy.)

• Have a Mad-Hat Day to increase the awareness of safe play in the sun.

At the Australian Cancer Research Foundation, 100% of the donations we receive go to world-class research into preventing and curing all types of cancer.

If you’re interested in holding a Schools Against Cancer event in National Science Week, please register your proposed fundraising idea for your school here, or contact our Schools Against Cancer Coordinator, Kamille Araya.
