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.

We receive no government funding. What we do, would not be possible without the support and generosity of people and organisations like YOU.

Our mission is simple: stop deaths from breast cancer. How? By identifying, funding and championing world-class research -research that will help us detect tumours earlier, improve treatment outcomes, and ultimately –save lives.

Since NBCF’s inception in 1994, the five-year survival rates for breast cancer has increased from 76% to 91%. It’s proof our strategy is working.

More than ever, NBCF is focussing keenly on how we can do more with less in order to achieve great outcomes that will impact the longevity and quality of life for patients with breast cancer.

For us, this means identifying new and effective models of funding and ensuring that we don’t stand alone but work collaboratively and creatively to achieve our mission of Zero Deaths by breast cancer by 2030.

Our aim at the National Breast Cancer Foundation is simple:
zero deaths from breast cancer.

How? By partnering with the Australian community to champion world-class breast cancer research to create a better tomorrow for all those impacted. Together, we can work towards a future without fear of breast cancer.

That’s exactly why we’re leading the way with game-changing research to stop deaths from breast cancer.

Since 1994, we have invested over $173 million in over 538 research projects Australia-wide. The results are impressive, but there’s still progress to be made.

With your support, we pledge to keep problem solving until we reach our goal: zero deaths from breast cancer.
