Apricity Finance, a specialist in invoice finance (or debtor finance) for SMEs has stepped up to support national charity, The Kids’ Cancer Project with a $20,000 donation.
It’s all part of The Kids’ Cancer Project’s most ambitious fundraising initiative ever - to raise $1.7 million by 31 October through a matched giving appeal.
The campaign started in August with outreach to corporate partners and major donors and at the start of September (Childhood Cancer Awareness Month), is generating community support that is set to continue through to the end of October.
With 950 children diagnosed each year and three passing away each week, funding scientific projects is the fastest way to a cure.
Owen Finegan, CEO of The Kids’ Cancer Project encourages organisations of all sizes to invest their corporate social responsibility dollar wisely and congratulated Apricity Finance for their generosity that is set to go a long way.
“Companies like Apricity Finance, looking for smart and meaningful returns on their corporate social responsibility dollar can multiply their impact up to four times through The Kids’ Cancer Project’s collaborative approach to scientific funding,” said Mr Finegan.
Investment with The Kids’ Cancer Project is going towards innovation grants to top researchers around Australia in partnership with the Federal Government through Cancer Australia's Priority-driven Collaborative Cancer Research Scheme (PdCCRS).
Linden Toll, CEO and Founder of Apricity Finance said; “My brother, who is seven years younger than me, had leukaemia when he was six and I experienced this first hand. We will always do our utmost to support children suffering from stupid diseases as much as we can. Owen and his team do an amazing job and we couldn't be prouder to support such a beautiful charity."
The Kids’ Cancer Project is seeking significant pledges from the business community to fund life-saving scientific research for childhood cancer, the number one killer by disease in Australian children.
