Cancer Council Australia is part of a federated organisation, representing the national interests of our eight member bodies, the state and territory Cancer Councils. We are a member-based community organisation and receive no recurrent government funding.
Subscriptions from our members covers the cost of our operational activities. The income we generate from fundraising events, donations, corporate support and the licensed use of our brand on sun protection products is returned to our members annually and contributes to funding their education, research and patient support programs.
Due to this structure, our financial reports refer to our income being $10.4 million. They do not include the additional $10.9 million generated and forwarded to member Cancer Councils.
