Support Australians affected by blood cancer through Workplace Giving

Workplace giving is a great way to donate to the ALLG automatically from your pre-tax pay.

By signing up to support the ALLG through your workplace giving program, you will be helping researchers find better treatments for blood cancer patients.

A workplace giving program is easy for employers to set up and provides many benefits for both companies and employees while supporting a worthy cause. Employers can also choose to match employee’s contributions dollar for dollar, which doubles the impact of their donation to blood cancer research.

Why choose to give to the ALLG?

Every 46 minutes, someone in Australia is diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or a related blood disorder and life for them and their family will change forever. Workplace giving is a simple way for working Australians to make a big difference in the search for cancer cures.

If just 10% of working Australians made a regular employee donation of $5 each week, their contributions would amount to over $300 million each year. The potential for new cancer research breakthroughs, through an increase in workplace giving, is phenomenal.

Your regular workplace giving donations will provide the ALLG with long term, stable funding to conduct more blood cancer clinical trials that influence blood cancer treatment practice worldwide.

Many people with cancer are now living longer, with a better quality of life, due to clinical trials. By choosing to support the ALLG through workplace giving, you, your colleagues and your company as a whole can practically and effectively make a real difference to the lives of the people living with blood cancer, and their families.
