Our project? To cure kids' cancer for good

What we do

What we do

The Kids’ Cancer Project is an independent Australian charity that funds world-leading research into childhood cancer.

Our project? To end the heartbreak childhood cancer brings to so many families.

  • Australia has one of the highest incidences of childhood cancer in the world.
  • Every year, 600 Australian children are diagnosed with cancer.
  • Childhood cancer claims the lives of three Australian children every week.
  • In Australia, childhood cancer represents a significant number of life years lost, second only to breast cancer.

Childhood cancer cannot be prevented, so the only way to improve outcomes for children with cancer is through medical research.

A non-institutional charity, we currently fund 13 research programs from eight of the most prestigious medical research organisations.

These programs are among the world’s best research into children’s cancer – a fact recognised by the international experts who sit on our Research Advisory Council and regularly assess the quality of the work your donations support.

Our supporters have helped us fund $20 million in medical research in the last seven years – and your generosity has contributed to real progress.

“I’ve made this my life’s mission because the most important asset we have – whether in the context of a family, a community or a whole society – is children. Our future is riding on them. And every single child deserves the opportunity to grow up and live their dreams.”
