Good evening and thank you for visiting Hastings Cancer Trust. Please stand by as we load the website for you.
2018 Grants Applications Opening Soon
The Grants Program Program is the means by which we distribute funds raised to help our community purchase or improve vital equipment and facilities.
Hastings Cancer Trust has seen the generosity of the community translated into much needed funding for a range of projects which have supported cancer patients and clinicians within our local area.
The money raised through fundraising efforts and generous donations is administered by trustees. The grants are awarded based on the value of the project to the community.
The Trust will be calling for applications later in the year for its 2018 round of grants from anyone involved in the management of cancer, or indeed, community organisations that support cancer patients, cancer survivors and their carers in the Hastings/Macleay areas.
The Hastings Cancer Trust Grants Program has given back over $1,000,000 to projects in our local community, enabling local organisations to:
Purchase state-of-the-art equipment for cancer treatment
Run world-class clinical trials, and offer specialists training for nurses, radiation therapists and other healthcare staff Provide accommodation for patients and families during treatment Improve the quality of local palliative care
Develop educational resources, workshops and support programs for local cancer patients, their families and carers.
