Cancer Council Queensland’s Portable Shade Project

Cancer Council Queensland's Portable Shade Project

Portable Shade Project 2022

Shade helps protect children from the damaging effects of sun exposure and reduces their risk of skin cancer. Help kids and your organisation become SunSmart this summer.

Cancer Council Queensland’s Portable Shade Project aims to provide shade for not-for-profit organisations catering for children (0-18years). Successful applicants will be provided with a high quality UPF50+ portable shade marquee (3×3 metres). Sizing may change for future grants.

In 2022, Cancer Council Queensland provided 394 fully funded, marquees (3mx3m) to eligible not-for profit organisations.


  • Not-for-profit organisations that cater for children up to the age of 18, such as primary and secondary schools, outside school hours care, sporting clubs, community groups and early childhood centres can apply for a free Portable Shade Marquee.
  • Marquees are available per site so that organisations with multiple sites may be eligible for more than one marquee.

We hope to continue this grant, keep an eye out here for more information for 2023
