Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF)
At the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) our aim is to beat cancer by funding world-class research. Our funds are used to buy state-of-the-art equipment and technologies that speed up the discovery process – saving lives by saving time.
With your help, the next vaccine, screening technology or gene therapy is only a few years away. Together we can beat cancer, so please consider ACRF as your charity of choice when shopping at Richies.
Since 2006, the Ritchies Community Benefit Card Program has contributed towards world-class research into all types of cancers around the country. The Australian Cancer Research Foundation is grateful that Ritchies continue to support vital funding for research in the prevention, diagnosis and cure for all types of cancer.
How is the Australian Cancer Research Foundation different from other cancer charities?
There are many not-for-profit cancer foundations in the charitable giving sector, and all of us are doing fantastic work. But here are a few defining points that might help you distinguish the Australian Cancer Research Foundation from other cancer charities:
- Our funds are used to purchase state-of-the-art equipment and technologies that speed up the discovery process – ultimately working to save lives by saving time.
- We fund research into ALL types of cancer, in only the best research institutes right across Australia.
- Since our inception in 1984, the ACRF has provided almost $95 million to world-class research in Australia, two thirds of which has been awarded in just the last eight years. These contributions have been made possible entirely thanks to generous Australian individuals, companies and community groups – ACRF receives no government funding or assistance.
