Colin Biggers & Paisley is supporting The Kids’ Cancer Project’s most ambitious fundraising initiative ever - to raise $1.7 million by 31 October through a matched giving appeal.
Earlier in the year, the legal practice, joined forces with the independent national charity by providing prizes for an online auction along with pro-bono legal services.
Now they’ve provided a corporate donation which will be invested in ground-breaking childhood cancer research.
With 950 children diagnosed each year and three passing away each week, funding scientific projects in the fastest way to a cure.
Owen Finegan, CEO of The Kids’ Cancer Project has seen firsthand the distance corporate social responsibility budgets can go with childhood cancer research and congratulated Colin Biggers & Paisley for stepping up.
“Companies like Colin Biggers & Paisley, looking for smart and meaningful returns on their corporate social responsibility dollar can multiply their impact up to four times through our collaboration with liked minded organisations and the current studies we have committed to 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).
Nick Crennan, managing partner at Colin Biggers & Paisley said he is delighted to partner with The Kids' Cancer Project.
"One of our Foundation's core focus areas is children. We look forward to supporting The Kids' Cancer Project to raise funds for scientific research to improve outcomes for children diagnosed with cancer," said Mr Crennan.
Mr Finegan said The Kids' Cancer Project is incredibly grateful Colin Biggers & Paisley has joined them on their mission.
“Together we will fund the best science to find kinder, more effective treatments and improve survival rates of the disease that kills more Australian children than any other,” he said.
The Priority-driven Collaborative Cancer Research Scheme (PdCCRS) is an innovative research project funding program that brings together government and other organisations to collaboratively fund cancer research in Australia.
