The McGrath Foundation
in your community

From time to time, you may see people in your community raising funds for the McGrath Foundation.

Identifying a fundraiser

McGrath Foundation fundraisers will be wearing bright pink McGrath Foundation tops and caps. The logo will be visible on their top, as well as on their ID, which will be around their neck on a McGrath Foundation lanyard, with their photo, name and ID number.

Face-to-face fundraisers are different to people who volunteer at community events. They can’t accept cash or cheques; they can only ask for regular monthly donations via a credit card or direct debit. If you’d like to make a one-off gift, you can do that here.

The McGrath Foundation in your street

As our Foundation grows, we’re engaging with more and more people across Australia to share the work our McGrath Breast Care Nurses do to help make life that little bit easier for families experiencing breast cancer. We’re knocking on doors around the country to have a chat and ask people to make a regular monthly donation to help us continue to fund these specialist nurses in communities where they’re needed.

A regular monthly donation helps us provide care today and plan for the future to ensure every family experiencing breast cancer has access to a McGrath Breast Care Nurse, no matter where they live – for free.

The McGrath Foundation is a member of the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA) which means we comply with strict regulations about fundraising practices. You can read about them here.

“Chloe had a warm, bubbly personality and straight away I could see she was in tune with the McGrath Foundation. I felt able to share with her that my wife had passed away, and she was very sympathetic and mature about my circumstances. I enjoyed speaking with Chloe and learning about the ways I could support the McGrath Foundation.”


“The fundraiser was awesome; we didn’t have a great deal of understanding about the foundation before they came to our door, only about Jane McGrath day at the cricket. Getting an understanding was great especially as someone close to us is a survivor of breast cancer – we wouldn’t have supported the organisation with a regular gift if the fundraiser hadn’t come to our door.”
