Ways to Help
The Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre Trust Fund works hard to lobby the corporate community, social, sporting and service clubs to establish partnership arrangements to generate donations for local cancer services.
Members of the community are also encouraged to organise and run fundraising projects to raise much-needed funds towards supporting cancer services in the wider Albury-Wodonga region.
Whether it’s a one-off fundraising project, directing a donation to the Trust Fund as part of a wider fundraising event or an annual event dedicated to raising funds for the Trust, every dollar raised will help make a difference to families impacted by cancer in our region.
Please note that we require all community event organisers to register their event with the Trust Fund before proceeding.
We ask that you read our Fundraising Event Guidelines and complete the registration form and we will be in touch – it’s that simple! See below under Fundraising Resources for more info.
Leave a Gift in Your Will
Create a lasting legacy through a bequest to the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre Trust Fund.
Bequests provide a lasting contribution in advancing our understanding of cancer, and shaping the future of treatment and care.
It is a special way to show your support and kindness to others touched by cancer.

Gift in Memory
Many families encourage donations in lieu of flowers at their loved one’s funeral, and see it as a fitting way to honour those close to them, while supporting a cause dear to their heart.
It is also a special way to thank cancer centre staff for their care and support.
Donations in memory of a loved one can be made online or in envelopes provided by the Trust Fund at the funeral.
Gift in Celebration
Whatever the occasion – Christmas, birthday, anniversary, wedding, or another special milestone – celebrate your next special event by giving a gift of hope for people facing cancer.
Ask your guests to make a donation in lieu of a present, and this generous support will help provide the best in cancer equipment, research, patient care, and world-leading wellness and supportive care programs.
Donations to celebrate a special occasion can be made online or in envelopes provided by the Trust Fund for an event.
Help us help local families impacted by cancer by becoming a volunteer.
Join our dedicated group of fundraisers and get a strong sense of satisfaction knowing that you’re making a difference at a grass roots level.
You’re sure to make great friends and have a lot of fun too!

Become a Volunteer Community Advocate
Our Volunteer Community Advocates serve as a link between the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre Trust Fund and communities throughout the region.
The cancer centre services all areas within a 200km radius of Albury, with two thirds of our patients coming from regional communities. Our community advocates, or Cancer Pals, assist the Trust Fund by promoting fundraising events, helping identify potential donor sources and serve as a point of contact for anyone wanting information on how to support the cancer centre in their community.
Anyone interested in the role can download the Volunteer Community Advocate Brief, or contact Trust Fund Manager Kristy McMahon on (02) 6064 1538 or email [email protected]
