Where does the money go?

Funds raised through the Dry July campaign are distributed to local and national cancer support organisations across Australia. These organisations provide invaluable services to people affected by cancer – from a lift to a life-saving appointment, guidance from a specialist nurse, connection to an informative voice, access to therapy programs or a bed close to treatment.

Everything we fund benefits the cancer patient and their families and carers. We aim to make a difficult time a little easier for people affected by cancer.
