“The Trust Fund has our full support. We believe that as a community working with a common purpose, we can and will prevail in achieving the objectives of the Trust Fund and of the wider “cancer” community.”
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.
The best way to help us meet our ongoing funding target is to coordinate a fundraising project. Whether 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 fundraising donation will make a difference to a cancer patient 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 our Events Manager will be in touch- it’s that simple! See below under Fundraising Resources for more info.
Why not use a good cause like funding the Regional Cancer Centre as an excuse to get together with friends, family, colleagues and community. If you have an idea for a fund raising event we’d love to hear about it. Send an email to [email protected] and we’ll do all we can to help you make it a reality.
Jane Evans (Fundraising, Marketing and Events Manager) and the board members of the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre Trust Fund have had many years of fundraising experience so if you need some help getting your fundraising idea off the ground or are in need of specific resources, get in touch at [email protected] and we’ll do all we can to help you make it a reality.
Please read our fundraising-event-guidelines-small-events or fundraising-event-guidelines-large-events (for events expected to attract more than 500 people) before proceeding and make sure you complete the Fundraising event registration form so we know your event is happening. Happy event planning!
