Fundraise for us

You don’t need to wait for a campaign to fundraise or raise awareness. You can empower your friends, family and local community to do their part to support people in Australia affected by head and neck cancer by hosting your own community event or activity at any time throughout the year.

Head and Neck Cancer Australia's community events help us provide people affected by head and neck cancer with access to education and support, raise awareness and advocate on behalf of the head and neck cancer community.

Organising your own community event is rewarding, fun and a great excuse to get together with family and friends! From a bake sale to a BBQ, big or small, whatever takes your fancy! Every bit helps.

Head and Neck Cancer Australia receives no government funding and relies on public donations and corporate support to fund our activities.Your involvement, no matter how big or small, will help make the lives of families experiencing head and neck cancer that little bit easier.

If you have any questions or require further information, please contact Head and Neck Cancer Australia by calling 1300 424 848 or email contact@headandneckcancer.org.au.
