Are you a Charity?
We are a registered Australian charity with the 'Australian Charities & Not-For-Profits Commission' (ACNC). The Foundation is a non-profit Public Benevolent Institution (PBI), a status originally granted by the Australian Tax Office, Australian charities are not issued with a charity number. For reporting reasons and to save confusion between similar-sounding names all Australian charities are required to have an individual ABN, ours is 99 095 779 114. PBI's that once reported to ASIC are now required to report annually to ACNC and documentation on all registered charities can be found there.
Do you door knock?
No we don’t door-knock. We have never used/paid commercial traders to door-knock on our behalf, and we never will. When you call our 1800 255 522 free call number, you speak directly with us and your donation goes directly to our Gift Account and remains untouched without any management fees, and is passed on 100% to struggling families of kids with cancer all over Australia.
How long has Kids with Cancer Foundation been in operation?
Kids with Cancer Foundation commenced in 1998 with the aim to provide funding for: childhood cancer sufferers, their families, children’s hospitals, and other institutions that assist children with cancer.
How much have you provided?
Since 1998 we have given away over $26 million to 10 Australian children's hospitals and families throughout Australia.
