Any donation you make, big or small, will go towards vital, world-class cancer research that can save lives and change lives.
TROG’s world leading research into radiation therapy and cancer treatment clinical trials help us to determine whether a promising new treatment is safe and effective and give us a better understanding of existing treatments.
Like chemotherapy and surgery, radiation therapy is a widely used cancer treatment, with around one in six people needing it during their lifetime.
Radiation therapy controls and even cures various cancers using high-energy x-rays and cutting-edge research and technology is continuously improving treatments.
Our research has the potential to directly improve outcomes and quality of life for people affected by cancer today and in the future, locally, nationally, and internationally.
One in three Australians will be diagnosed with cancer and donations are vital in ensuring TROG Cancer Research continues to produce and support quality clinical cancer research.
All donations of $2.00 and over are fully tax-deductible and you will receive a receipt from TROG Cancer Research.
Workplace giving is when you make a small and regular donation, via your workplace.
They have the benefit of giving you (or your team) a tax break and help you make a difference with a pre-tax charitable donation scheme.
It's an easy and effective way for workplaces to contribute to life-saving cancer research. Some employers will even match employee donations as part of their own corporate social responsibility program.
Continue your legacy with a lasting gift.
You can continue to support research into more effective treatments for cancer patients by remembering TROG Cancer Research in your will (including TROG Cancer Research in your will through a bequest).
Bequests play a vital role in helping to fund cancer clinical trials, ensuring that important research continues to improve the outcomes and treatments for people suffering from cancer.
We strongly recommend that you consult with a solicitor when preparing your will. We understand the careful consideration that is required in making this important decision.
To arrange a confidential discussion or to obtain further information we would be more than happy to meet or discuss this important decision with you.
Hosting a fundraising event is a great way to show your support for TROG Cancer Research. Gather your family, friends or work colleagues for a fun event that raises vital funds to assist us in finding new and innovative ways to treat and manage cancer.
Fundraising can take on many forms – it can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose. It can be a one-off event, a regular activity in the workplace, or a series of small events in the lead up to a particular milestone.
No matter what the event you host, it’s a fantastic opportunity to show support for those affected by cancer and those working to treat it.
When you lose a loved friend or family member, a commemorative donation to TROG Cancer Research is a thoughtful way to honour their memory.
Every life lived is important and gifts of money in lieu of flowers are a fitting way to help fund cancer research.
If you are arranging a funeral and would like to encourage your family and friends to give an 'In Memory' gift to cancer trials research, we can help. Alternatively, ask your funeral director to contact us.
As a corporate partner you have an even greater opportunity to contribute to improved outcomes for people affected by cancer.
Our corporate sponsorship packages are a true partnership between your organisation and ours. We welcome in-kind sponsorships as well as traditional direct cash sponsorships, as we recognise that giving comes in many forms. We also welcome opportunities to speak with your team about the world-class research we are conducting, right here in Newcastle.
Partnering with TROG Cancer Research not only supports the cancer patients of today but helps us in the global effort to beat cancer in the future.
Lead your organisation in showing a commitment to improving outcomes for cancer patients and get in touch with us to discuss further.
Each October we host our annual Tea4TROG event. It provides a great opportunity to connect with local businesses and community members over a high tea while also raising valuable funds for TROG Cancer Research.
As our TROG Cancer Research high tea fundraiser grows in success year on year, our last event proved to be no exception with the sold-out event celebrating record numbers.
Hosted by cancer survivor and radio broadcaster Julie McCrossin, the event was entertaining and informative as Julie spoke of her own experience of head and neck radiation therapy and her amazingly positive results.
Our guest speaker, Associate Professor Puma Sundaresan, Consultant Radiation Oncologist at Blacktown and Westmead Hospital and member of the TROG Scientific Committee and TROG Cancer Research Board member, provided an inspiring and informative presentation on TROG Cancer Research processes.
Focusing on trial development from initial stages through to end results of changing clinical practice, she provided guests with insight into the vital role TROG Cancer Research plays for researchers, medical professionals, patients, and the wider community. As well as enjoying a sumptuous high tea, guests showed great generosity taking part in a silent auction and raffle with plenty of donated prizes.
You can also host your own Tea4TROG, and in the past, we have had with numerous successful events take place across the country during the month of October, all funds raised going directly to TROG Cancer Research clinical trials.
Our event sponsors included ACIM Solutions, Monica Clare Recruitment and Varley Group with support from local companies such as Seed Consulting and The Marketing GP.
We aim to again host Tea4TROG when limits on public gatherings are lifted and we would love you to join us.
For over 30 years, TROG Cancer Research has been dedicated to improving the way radiation medicine is delivered to cancer patients with ongoing scientific research, clinical trials, and cutting-edge technology.
