Daffodil Day

Daffodil Day
Friday, 28 August.

Daffodil Day is Cancer Council’s flagship fundraising event held on Friday, 28 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.

This year, the Daffodil Day Appeal aims to raise more than $2 million for lifesaving cancer research. Even though COVID-19 will change the way Daffodil Day looks in 2020, we will continue to encourage Queenslanders to create hope by raising funds for lifesaving cancer research.

You can support Daffodil Day by making a donation online or by fundraising and ‘shaking’ a virtual tin. Daffodil Day will take place on 28 August, but we’re encouraging our supporters to participate throughout the entire month

One in two Australians are diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. This is a cause that affects us all. So, we’re encouraging all Queenslanders to take to social media, lean on their networks and shake their virtual tin!

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.
