We are incredibly proud to announce that the Colin Biggers & Paisley Foundation has partnered with The Kids' Cancer Project (TKCP) to collaborate on one of our focus areas: children.
In Australia, more children die from cancer than any other disease. TKCP have worked for over 25 years to support innovative science that has the highest chance of clinical success to improve childhood cancer treatments. Their vision is to achieve a one hundred percent survival rate for children who have been diagnosed with cancer and eradicate the harmful impacts treatment can bring.
To help support TKCP's vision and work, the Colin Biggers & Paisley Foundation is providing a range of pro bono legal services, donations, fundraising, employee contributions, in-kind support and professional volunteering.
This is a unique opportunity to bring our core skills, resources, people and energy, together with TKCP'S knowledge and expertise, to achieve real and lasting change for the lives of the kids and their families affected by kids' cancer.
“We are incredibly grateful Colin Biggers & Paisley are with us on our mission," said Owen Finegan, CEO Kids Cancer Project. "Together we will fund the best science to find kinder, more effective treatments and improve survival rates of the disease that kills more Australian children than any other.”
This month the Colin Biggers & Paisley Foundation is supporting TKCP's most ambitious fundraising initiative ever - to raise $1.7 million by 31 October through a matched giving appeal.
This means that every dollar raised will be matched by TKCP's matching partners with the hope of raising $1.7 million. To celebrate our partnership, the Foundation will be making a donation on behalf of all our people towards the matched giving appeal.
“Companies like Colin Biggers & Paisley, looking for smart and meaningful returns on their corporate social responsibility dollar, can multiply their impact up to four times through our collaboration with like-minded organisations and the current studies we have committed to funding,” said Mr Finegan.
Funds raised with TKCP is going towards innovation grants to top researchers around Australia in partnership with the Federal Government through Cancer Australia's Priority-driven Collaborative Cancer Research Scheme (PdCCRS)*.
We look forward to supporting and working with TKCP on all their very important work.
* The Priority-driven Collaborative Cancer Research Scheme (PdCCRS) is an innovative research project funding program that brings together government and other organisations to collaboratively fund cancer research in Australia.
