Giving Tuesday

Event Info

Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

The need for cancer screening and treatment did not stop because of the pandemic. And unfortunately with more people unemployed and without adequate health insurance, more people are having to chose whether they can afford recommended health care.
The Centre continues to provide access to all, including those whose insurance did not cover 100% of the service cost and those without health insurance at all.
However, the past two years have been challenging with physical fundraising events not able to be held in the traditional format and general donations lower than needed.  
Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to help us close the gap on our $500,000 shortfall.  We ask you to consider making a donation so that we can continue to subsidise the cost of clinical services for at least the same level of patients as we did in 2020.
DONATE HERE and be sure to select Giving Tuesday from the drop down menu.
We couldn't do it without your support - every bit helps us serve the community!
