Our commitment to support children with cancer

The Children's Cancer Foundation is proud to announce funding commitments totalling $8.5 million across 25 projects through to 2023 – our most significant program of project funding in the Foundation’s 25-year history.


From research into various cancer types, to much-needed clinical trials, to critical family support programs, we are investing in projects that will change the statistics for children with cancer.


We partner with like-minded charities to fund many of these projects, in particular My Room is contributing $2.4 million through to 2023. A complete list of our project funding is available on our website.


The Foundation receives strong community and corporate support: our Run Melbourne team raised $60,000 in July and The Million Dollar Lunch raised a record-breaking $2.1 million in August.


But to continue funding programs that will positively impact children with cancer we need your help. Host a fundraiser, make a tax-deductible donation or join one of our upoming events, such as the Color Run or Murray to Moyne.


With your help, we are letting children shine; now and in the future.
