What We Do

At The Kids’ Cancer Project we fund RESEARCH. We fund SCIENCE. We fund bold and innovative ideas, upon recommendation from our Research Advisory Committee in our endeavour to see one hundred percent survival rate for children with cancer, while eradicating the harmful effects treatment can bring.

More About Us

Independent Funding Allocation

Our expert Research Advisory Committee (RAC) independently review and rate all grant submissions. Their recommendations are handed to The Kids’ Cancer Project Board who ultimately determine the studies funded. The rules of the peer review process prohibit RAC members endorsing their own projects.
