Donate to support our Research

The Centre for Cancer Biology (CCB) incorporates the Hanson Centre for Cancer Research legacy and works with SA based philanthropic organisations to raise funds to support our vision to find causes and cures for cancer.  A key benefit of this collaborative approach is that we can reduce administration costs. We are extremely proud to work with the following organisations to deliver the best value to donors resulting in greater investment in breakthrough research in cancer: 

The University of South Australia Advancement Services team facilitates mutually beneficial relationships between the University and its benefactors, alumni and friends. Advancement Services is responsible for the alumni network of over 174,000 graduates, and managing programs aimed to foster life-long partnerships with graduates and benefactors. The University’s alumni network spans every industry and profession, and spreads all over the world.

100% of your donation through the The University of South Australia will support cutting edge research and facilities at the Centre for Cancer Biology. No administration costs are deducted.

The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) supports and advocates for world-leading medical research that translates into the prevention of disease, the relief of suffering, improved patient care and the restoration of health and wellness for all in our community. THRF is proud to support leadership and innovation in research that translates into the provision of outstanding medical and nursing care in our hospitals and improved health and wellbeing in the community. THRF provides Grants for research projects, programs and research personnel across a number of leading research facilities within South Australia including CCB.

Every $1 you donate to CCB through THRF goes directly to lifesaving cancer research. THRF also generates an additional $4 in grants to research and patient care in South Australia. This is because THRF's administration costs are covered by their commercial business activities (such as their lottery program), which also boosts their funds to research and patient care each year. You can feel proud knowing your donation makes an even bigger impact to the health and wellbeing of your community.

Established in 1981, the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) Research Fund believes everyone deserves access to the best possible treatment and patient care. The RAH Research Fund strives to make this possible by raising funds for medical equipment, lifesaving medical and clinical research and enhanced patient services. The RAH Research Fund works with its community supporters, to raise funds for vital medical research. Most of the funds raised are through the generosity of everyday South Australians who support the RAH Research Fund with kind donations or by leaving a gift to the Research Fund in their Will. With the support of our donors, the RAH Research Fund makes a positive impact by funding research into the diseases that affect the people in our local community. All donations made to the RAH Research Fund are vested with The Health Services Charitable Gifts Board (HSCGB)

What will my donation support?

Your donation will be used to fund breakthrough research on the fundamental causes of cancer and translate these discoveries into cures, with global impact. In addition to general donations to the CCB, you may want to consider the following donation options: 

Make a donation in memoriam and in honour
Make a gift to the Centre for Cancer Biology in lieu of flowers to honour a loved one who has passed away from cancer, or to mark special occasions such as birthdays, weddings and anniversaries.

Purchase state of the art research equipment
The CCB relies heavily on donations to enable us to purchase the equipment we require to undertake our research. Please contact us or one of our philanthropic partners above to discuss options. A personalised plaque may be affixed to any equipment bought.

These can be from one to five years and can be named after a family, a family member, or a company.

Build a corporate partnership
The Centre for Cancer Biology welcomes the support of the business community. Please contact us to discuss how we might partner with your organisation.
