The Hastings Cancer Trust Grants Program 

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.
