We’re supported by wonderful people — just like you!

Help the Childhood Cancer Association make a real difference to children with cancer, and their families.

You can help in so many ways.

First, please consider making a donation or become a regular giver. Every dollar goes to helping us provide the practical support children and their families need.


More ways you can help!

We can only do what we do with people just like you.

Volunteers are really what makes the Childhood Cancer Association tick.

People like you help support our events and raise the vital money we need.

So, if you fancy giving us a hand, why not give us a shout?

You can volunteer your time… you can set up an event… you can even help us fundraise by knitting hoodies for our mascot Elliot!

If you want to get involved, or you’ve got a great idea — we’d love to hear from you.

Inspiring ideas!

If you’re wondering “how could I help raise money for the Childhood Cancer Association?”, here are some inspiring ideas to get you going!

If you’re in business, take a look at ideas for corporates!

Sausage sizzle

Let’s start with the easy one — who doesn’t love a sausage sizzle? They’re easy to organise and lots of shops and businesses offer a warm welcome, so what’s not to like?

Head shaves

Volunteering to have your head shaved for us is a great way for your family and friends to rally round and get the donations coming in — and think of all the money you’ll save on haircuts!

Bake sale

From cakes to scones, from muffins to meringues, organising a bake sale is a sweet way to bring in the dollars for children with cancer, and their families. 

Gala dinner

If you’ve not had the chance to dust down that elegant frock or stylish black tie suit recently, perhaps it’s time to organise a gala dinner for your nearest and dearest or your colleagues — all in aid of the Childhood Cancer Association.

School presentations

If your children are active in their school music or arts productions, asking the principal or teacher to choose the Childhood Cancer Association as a donation beneficiary doesn't just raise vital funds — it also spreads the word about the work we do.

Walk, run or ride

Whether you’re preparing for your latest running event, you’re ready to pedal across the state, or you’re thinking of motorcycling around Australia, we’d love to hear from you. Choose us as your charity and help us make the difference.

Quiz nights

Test out the brain power of you, your mates and people in your local community — set up a quiz night and make us the answer to your first question — which charity will we be supporting?


If you or you and your friends are in it for the long haul, a sportathon might be just the ticket. From 24 hour table tennis to pool, from soccer to netball, there’s hardly a sport that wouldn’t be more fun if it goes into overtime!

Donations in lieu of gifts

If you’re planning a party or a wedding and you’re not sure what to ask people to bring, why not ask for donations to us instead?  We can provide collection envelopes for your occasion and provide tax-deductible receipts for your donors. Contact us for more information. 

Buy an Elliot

Elliot is more than just our mascot. Every child referred to us is given an Elliot to help them on their journey, and he also plays a really important role in our fundraising activities. Every cent of every dollar from a sale helps more families affected by childhood cancer. Order one now.
