1 in 3 people are touched by cancer - we are doing our best to help each one. We are the second largest non‑government cancer research funding charity in New Zealand, and every cent of every dollar donated is applied to the work of the trust.
The Cancer Research Trust is a registered Charity with the New Zealand Charities Services (registration CC23672), making all donations tax refundable.
The Trust provides grants to doctors and scientists conducting ground-breaking cancer research, and to medical and scientific cancer-control personnel for their professional development and education.
The Cancer Research Trust invites applications for grants to support New Zealand-based initiatives that will lead to improvements in the prevention, detection, diagnosis or treatment of cancer, or improvements in palliative care.
