How You Can Help!

For over 30 years The Gawler Cancer Foundation and the Yarra Valley Living Centre have helped thousands of people with cancer find support, hope and a better quality of life.

As a charitable, not-for-profit organisation that receives no government funding, we rely on the support of the community, corporate groups, philanthropic trusts, and individuals like you, to be able to continue to support and empower people living with cancer through the delivery of our educational retreat programs.

Perhaps you’ve been through a diagnosis yourself, or your loved one is in the thick of it. Perhaps you simply want to be part of bringing hope and empowerment to others who are affected by the disease. If you would like to make an impact on the lives of people living with cancer, here are some ways that you can help us achieve our goals…


Donate now online or download our donation mailing form.
Follow us on Facebook and share our posts with your network.
Become a Member to receive a subscription to our quarterly Living Well magazine and a host of other member offers.
Sponsor a person with Cancer to attend one of our life-changing retreat programs.
Host or participate in a fundraising event with friends, family &/or community groups. You can also visit our fundraising events page on Everyday Hero and join one of the participation events on our page, or register your own event for others to join in on!
Register for workplace giving and nominate a set amount to be deducted from your pay. The amount is deducted before-tax is calculated so you end up paying less tax and helping a worthwhile cause at the same time! Some employers will even match your donation, ask your employer about this option today.
Volunteer with us!  We have a range of opportunities for individuals or corporate groups in our gardens, grounds, kitchen, resource centre and administration areas.
Register for online shopping through ShopNate and without actually costing you a cent more, a portion of your purchase will be donated to us from the retailer. You can shop online across 100’s of retails such as Booktopia, Microsoft, The Iconic, Bendon, Adairs, Avis and Oxfam – the list goes on.
Share your Story to inspire others and raise awareness that healing and wellbeing is possible.
Leave a gift in your will to make a difference in the lives of others
Corporate Sponsorship or Support

If you would like more information on any of the above, or have additional ideas of ways that we can create more awareness about our services, please do not hesitate to get in touch.  

All acts of support, big or small, go a long way to helping us continue our life-enhancing work.


Thank you.
