Start a Fundraiser

Do you want to take action and support a worthy cause by hosting your own event to raise funds for the Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute?

No matter how big or small your fundraising idea, we truly appreciate your efforts. Fundraising can be an incredibly rewarding experience, particularly when your efforts are focussed on supporting a cause that you are passionate about.

You can choose to either hold your event privately or promote your event on our website, with your unique webpage to send to your friends and others who can make a donation, attributed to your fundraising event!

Due to limited resources, Institute employees are not able to assist with event logistics or PR/marketing for each individual event; however, we value your support and will strive to meet all information requests to make your event a great success.
