National Breast Cancer Foundation

The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is Australia’s leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research with money raised entirely by the Australian public.

Our mission is simple: stop deaths from breast cancer.

How? By identifying, funding and championing world-class research – research that’s helping us detect tumours earlier, improve treatment outcomes and ultimately – save lives.

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia, with eight women dying from the disease every day. Incidence is on the rise – meaning, more mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, friends and families will be impacted.

In 2018, NBCF has committed $11 million to fund 20 new research projects. From understanding the genetic basis of the disease, to developing new diagnostic tools, preventative measures, and targeted treatments – they explore promising areas of investigation across the spectrum.

In total, since 1994, NBCF has awarded over $162 million to 514 breast cancer research projects across the country. We’ve seen remarkable results, but the job’s not done.

We receive no government funding. With the community in our corner, we’re working towards one determined goal: zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
