Major Gifts

You don't have to be a scientist to help kids like Roxy survive cancer. Please make a tax-deductible donation before 30 June. 

Make a major impact

90 kids are diagnosed with cancer every month in Australia. Thanks to research, the average survival rate for childhood cancers is now 86% - compared to just 10% in 1950. However, almost all cancer treatments leave survivors with lifelong side effects and health issues. 

The Kids' Cancer Project is an independent national charity supporting childhood cancer research. Thanks to strong community support, we have committed over $70 million dollars to childhood cancer research across 340 research projects nationwide. Your generous philanthropic support directly funds much needed medical research into kinder and less toxic treatments for our kids.

Survival starts with science

Associate Professor Rishi Kotecha is currently carrying out an exciting five-year clinical trial across multiple medical institutions. The trial, called Interfant-21, stands to revolutionise the standard treatment for high-risk children with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

“The Kids’ Cancer Project has provided incredible longstanding support for my preclinical research, which has focused on improving the dismal outcome for infants diagnosed under one year of age with ALL. The funding has been vital to building a pre-clinical testing pipeline where my team and I have tested promising new drugs on unique models of the disease.”

Your support today is vital in helping support pioneering research trials such as the Interfant-21 project. By making a gift today, you could help ensure future trials have the resources they need to develop more effective treatments with fewer negative side-effects. Donate now.
