Signature Programme FAQs
Cancer Society receives no Government funding for its services, so we rely entirely on the generosity of supporters like you to provide crucial help to cancer patients and families.
Despite all the modern technology available today, talking directly with people about the need for cancer services and finding life-saving cancer treatments is one of the most effective ways to inspire them to become a regular donor.
Our door-to-door team are following all Covid-19 guidelines, ensuring the health and safety of the public and themselves.
Regular giving means setting up a regular donation to Cancer Society for an amount of your choosing. The donation can be made by credit card or straight from your bank account to ours via a Direct Debit. Donations are ideally made each month and place your kindness at the forefront of our services to those going through cancer and alongside our researchers in their vital work .
We ask that you choose a monthly gift amount that suits your particular circumstances and that you can sustain comfortably on an ongoing basis.
Many people choose to give around $30 a month but the amount is entirely up to you.
Our fundraisers are an enthusiastic and dedicated team who are passionate about helping people with cancer.
Our team are following very strict Covid19 guidelines to ensure both their own and the public's safety during this time. We provide the names of our fundraisers and the areas they are working in to reassure you that they are genuinely fundraising on behalf of the Cancer Society.
Sometimes their work is challenging and difficult so please, even if you are not in a position to become a part of the Signature Programme, say hello to them and make them feel valued and supported.
