Pro bono and in-kind support

You can donate in-kind goods or pro bono services that we would otherwise need to buy on commercial terms. Pro bono and in-kind goods and services enable us to direct an even greater percentage of the donations we receive to our programs.

Celebrate the milestones in your life and help us to improve the quality of life of breast cancer patients. If you've got a special occasion coming up - a wedding, birthday or anniversary - why not ask friends and family to make a donation to the Sydney Breast Cancer Foundation in place of a gift to you.

The easiest way to request donations for your special occasion is to set up your own online fundraising page. You can use emails, social media or word of mouth to ask your friends and family make a donation to your chosen cause.

Let us know when your special day is and we can send you donation forms or envelopes especially for your big day - these can be left on tables or sent out with the invitations. We can send a thank you to anyone who has kindly donated in lieu of gifts for your special occasion - just let us know who by contacting us on 02 8514 0659 or email us at sbcf@lh.org.au. After your event, we'll let you know how much has been raised from your special occasion.

Make a donation as a gift to someone special. We will send a tax receipt to you and if you would like a card to give to the person who is celebrating just let us know when you donate. Please add the person's name and what they are celebrating so we can personalise the card.
