State and territory Cancer Councils, which comprise the member bodies of Cancer Council Australia, are the major non-government sponsors of cancer research and related activities in Australia.
Cancer Councils fund and conduct research that is based on scientific merit and competitive, peer-reviewed assessment to ensure the most judicious use of community fundraising, donations, bequests and merchandise sales.
In 2014, research grants through Cancer Councils totalled more than $65 million. Cancer Councils directly funded $42.9 million in research, with a further $22.2 million contributed by our research funding partners.
For research grants spanning more than one year, only funds to be dispersed in 2014 have been included.
