Our community

Australian Cancer Research Foundation unites supporters and researchers striving towards a common cause – to outsmart cancer.

We believe a world without cancer is possible. At ACRF, we know that together, we can end all cancers, and we won’t stop until we do.

Thanks to the ambition and generosity of our many supporters, we have been able to provide 69 grants to 37 institutes across Australia. We are funding better ways of detecting, preventing and treating all cancers and we are incredibly grateful to our supporters and researchers for making this possible.

“No other organisation in Australia offers the wonderful infrastructure support for cancer research like ACRF.

Their funding has, for many research centres in Australia, been so vital to speeding up the discovery process.”

Professor Michelle Haber AM,
Executive Director at the Children’s Cancer Institute

Many individuals and organisations have gone above and beyond to help us on our quest to outsmart cancer.

From headshaves, to marathons, to trivia nights and generous donations, everybody has a different way of showing their support for ACRF.

Our ACRF community is passionate about innovation and impact. Every single person who contributes is helping us achieve our shared goal.

“When it comes to fundraising, I chose to support ACRF because of their sole focus on cancer research.

There is nothing more gut-wrenching than hearing the news that a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer. Until research leads to ending all types of cancer, it is vitally important to continue fundraising and raising awareness. I encourage anyone else who is thinking of fundraising and who genuinely wants to make a difference to act without delay. Without the support of the wider community, cancer research won’t continue at its current pace and every step forward leads to progress.”
