How your donation supports our life-saving work

Whether you've made a one-off gift or monthly donation, thank you. Your donation helps the brightest emerging scientists continue their research and will bring us one step closer to finding a cure.

This year, we committed to funding 13 innovative new research projects across 10 different cancers. With your donation, we aim to fund new ways of tackling all cancers as quickly as we can - by improving prevention, detection and screening, diagnostic tools, and treatments, and ultimately saving lives. 

Your one-off donation

Donating even a small amount can make a difference. 

Every dollar you donate goes towards the resources and equipment needed to kick-start one of our diverse new cancer research projects, with each having the potential to break new ground. 

Working together, we can fund impactful solutions and bring them to life from bench to bedside as quickly as possible.  

Your monthly donation

Every dollar matters, but when you make a regular donation, even if it’s a small amount, your impact builds up over time.

Continued funding means we can plan ahead and commit to long-term research projects that have the biggest impact to help cure cancer.

As a regular giver, you will receive regular updates on the progress and success of the research projects you have helped to fund.

Why donate to Cure Cancer?

We are dedicated to kick-starting bright new ideas in cancer research. 

Your donation helps fund the top 1% of the most ground-breaking new projects, led by brilliant emerging researchers, across all cancers.

Together, with our supporters, partners, researchers, and institutes, we are working to find the most impactful solutions as quickly as we can.  

Our vision is to cure cancer. With your support, we know we can.
