Kids Cancer Research Trust is a non-profit organisation which raises funds to support the following objectives:
Our friendly team make calls from time to time to alert people about our programs, provide general information, and ask for support to help the families that rely on us.
Donations can be completed by credit card, over the phone. If you are unable to do this, a letter can be sent to you. Receipts will be posted, or to save us the costs associated with hard copy mail, emailed, to any address you nominate.
If you have any doubts about the validity of someone who has phoned you, please phone us on 1300 650 749. Plesae be aware that we do not sell raffle tickets, teddy bears, or any other merchandise over the phone. We also will never sell your information, which is kept secure within our own system.
We sometimes have our bubbly and outgoing advocates in shopping centres and high traffic areas providing information to people, while accepting donations to help continue our programs. Please feel free to walk up to them and find out more about what we do, and how you can help. All money is placed directly into one of our secure containers, so you can be confident that the money is kept safe until it reaches us.
If you'd like to host a special event or an ongoing fundraising initiative with funds raised going to Kids Cancer Research Trust, please contact us so that we can support you. We are happy to help out in any way we can. Kids Cancer Research Trust encourages and supports many fundraising initiatives from individuals and organisations.
