In the last year, you have helped fund the biggest research push in Australian history with more than 62 cents in every dollar you donate being directly invested into world-class brain cancer research, advocacy, and awareness - the cause.
We work hard to keep our administration costs low, at just 15 per cent. And while there are also some costs associated with our fundraising, this investment ultimately allows us to generate more revenue, which means more funding for potentially lifesaving research.
importantly, your donations help Cure Brain Cancer Foundation make significant and
constant improvements to a system that that has failed to increase brain cancer
survival in more than 30 years. This would not have been possible by funding
Our investment in advocacy and awareness has resulted in a Government-backed $100 million national plan to double brain cancer survival in ten years. I am proud the Foundation has delivered such a significant return on our donors’ money, and Australia now leads a consolidated global effort to beat brain cancer.
Our administration costs are down, year-on-year, and far from aiming to grow, Cure Brain Cancer Foundation’s ultimate goal is to be out of business as quickly as possible by finding a cure for brain cancer, regardless of cost.
That’s why we have invested more than $13 million into quality, world-class research over the last five years to provide Australians with access to quality treatments as soon as they are available anywhere in the world.
Every day, five Australians are diagnosed with brain cancer. For those people, months, even weeks, can mean the difference between life and death. We owe it to them to devote all resources necessary to find a cure as fast as possible.
Whether that’s lobbying government, encouraging pharmaceutical companies to focus on brain cancer, funding international research collaborations, or backing fundraising campaigns to generate more funds for research, we must do it, if it will lead to increased survival.
Brain cancer is finally a national priority. There is now a Government-backed plan to rapidly beat brain cancer, and we must work together as a team to ensure it succeeds, rather than competing.
must unite with one strong voice and continue to raise funds, advocate, and
increase awareness, so we can rapidly improve survival outcomes for Australians
with brain cancer. Thank
you for your incredible and continued support.
