Support Sarcoma Research

ASSG Pledge: 100% of donations go to sarcoma research

The Australasian Sarcoma Study Group (ASSG) is a clinical research cooperative group established to improve outcomes for sarcoma and related tumours in the Australian community. The ASSG holds a licence to receive donations in each State and the Australian Capital Territory (there is no licence requirement in the Northern Territory). The ASSG also holds endorsement from the Australian Tax Office as a health promotion charity with deductible gift recipeint status meaning that all donations over $2 are eligible for tax deduction. All gifts and donations are kept in the ASSG sarcoma research gift fund: 100% of donated money is used for sarcoma research.

Why donate to sarcoma research?

An increase in the availability, access and participation in clinical research leads to increased survival for sarcoma patients. Cancer Australia (read more) provides the infrastructure for the ASSG to operate however the conduct of sarcoma research relies on donations and sponsorship. 

How to make a bequest?

Making a bequest to the ASSG is an investment in sarcoma research. After the death of a loved one families often request that donations be made rather than flowers be purchased. Any donation of any type and size is both welcomed and gratefully appreciated! Please contact the ASSG at or 1800 177 657  if you wish to receive ASSG donation envelopes.
