How you can help beat cancer

Volunteers play a pivotal role in creating a cancer free future.

Make a donation

A tax deductible donation will contribute to vital cancer research, support services for patients and their families, and prevention and early detection campaigns.

Give regularly

A little goes a long way when you give regularly. It also gives us confidence to commit to long‑term research projects to make lifesaving discoveries. For more information, please call the Donor Hotline on 1300 66 39 36 or email breakthrough@cancerqld.org.au

Workplace giving

An automated payroll deduction can be set up so it’s easier to give directly to Cancer Council Queensland – it’s a simple and tax-deductible way to donate. Organisations also have the opportunity to match workplace giving.

Host (or join) a fundraising event

Whether it’s Daffodil Day, Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, Relay For Life or Pink Ribbon Fundraising, get excited and get involved with your colleagues and friends and raise funds for vital research, support services and prevention and early detection campaigns.

Volunteer with us

Our volunteers are everyday people who generously give their time, skills and energy to our cause. There are so many ways to volunteer  you may have specialist skills, be able to provide cancer-related information, support services and education programs for patients and carers or perhaps you’d like to help with administration. Corporate volunteer opportunities are also available, along with volunteer positions at our fundraising events.

Buy SunSmart

A full range of sun protection merchandise is available through our retail stores located in Brisbane, Toowoomba and the Sunshine Coast, as well as the Cancer Council Shop online. Buying sun protection products from Cancer Council Queensland will not only protect your health and safety, but also support the vital work we do for the Queensland community, and invest in a cancer free future.
