Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) believe that a world without cancer is possible. It is a bold statement but one that we are committed to.

We can’t do this without you. Every day our supporters help to accelerate what can be achieved by giving Australia’s best scientists the technology they need to end all cancers through better detection, prevention and treatment.

We are passionate about innovation and impact and believe accelerating cancer research is vital.  Thanks to our generous and committed supporters we award grants between $1-10M each year for major equipment and technology. We are the only charity in Australia that does this, many fund the person (the researcher) but no-one else provides the cutting-edge equipment they need.

Together we can end all cancers, and we won’t stop until we do. 

What makes the Australian Cancer Research Foundation different from any other cancer charity foundation?

* We raise funds exclusively for cancer research, into all its aspects; not just treatment but equally important, prevention and diagnosis for all types of cancer.

* We finance facilities not provided for by State or federal governments. Thus, the ACRF fills a vital gap in research funding in this country, receiving no government funding or assistance whatsoever.

* Every dollar of every donation received goes to cancer research: All our expenses are paid from accumulated investment revenue earned by the cancer Foundation.

* In just the last six years, donations from generous Australian and individuals and corporations have allowed this cancer Foundation to fund over $48 million in cancer research projects which will see real breakthroughs in treatment, prevention and diagnosis.
