Daffodil Day

Daffodil Day
Friday, 27 August.

Daffodil Day will be held on Friday, 27 August.

The Daffodil Day Appeal is Cancer Council’s most iconic and much-loved fundraising campaign. It is a day for Australians to give hope to those affected by all cancers by donating to support a cancer free future.

You can still donate to help stop cancer.

One in two Australians are diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. This is a cause that affects us all.

How you’re helping!


Donating just $15 online does a lot. You could help equip our ground-breaking researchers with the essential chemicals and lab equipment they need to conduct their life-saving work.


A gift of just $50 can help fund lifesaving research into using the body’s own immune system to fight cancer. Your $50 could help bring about the next wave of breakthrough immunotherapy treatments.


Asking your family, friends and colleagues to pitch in and donate $250 can pay a Lab Assistant for a day to support a Researcher with vital laboratory testing. Research labs need all the bright minds they can get – and your support makes you a vital part of the team.


A Daffodil Day virtual fundraising event that raises $500 can help support ground breaking research into new and better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat breast and gynaecological cancers.
