The National Breast Cancer Foundation is the leading community-funded organisation in Australia raising money for research into the prevention and cure of breast cancer.
We are privileged to work with the public who both give and raise funds and the research community to whom we grant funds to change the health future.
Since the National Breast Cancer Foundation was established in 1994, $97 million has been awarded to fund over 340 Australian-based research projects across every state and territory to improve the health and wellbeing of those affected by breast cancer.
We are very proud that the National Breast Cancer Foundation raises and grants funds exclusively for research, because we believe research is the most effective way to end breast cancer. We are also very proud of the fact that the National Breast Cancer Foundation has a commitment to funding research right across the spectrum – from understanding the fundamental basis of the disease to psychosocial research aimed at improving the quality of life for survivors.
Our aspirational goal is to achieve zero death from breast cancer by 2030. With 37 Australians diagnosed each day and seven losing their battle, there is still much to do.
