How to support Canteen

You can help young people overcome the immense challenges of cancer in so many different ways from making a monthly donation, fundraising or selling Canteen bandannas in your community. You can also partner with us as an organisation, as a philanthropist, by leaving a gift in your Will, or by donating your time. However you choose to support Canteen, you will be providing life-changing support to young Aussies impacted by cancer. Thank you to everyone who has supported Canteen this year!


Our bandannas
You can buy your favourite bandanna all year round through our online shop and we also have face masks, tote bags and more! One of our fun ways of fundraising for cancer is through our iconic Bandanna Day campaign, which is held every October. Since it began, Australians have helped us raise more than $35 million to support young people impacted by cancer.
Raise it for Canteen
Join our community of local fundraisers helping young people stand up to cancer through a variety of cancer fundraising events. Raise money by choosing your own challenge (like dying your hair or quitting coffee) or challenge yourself to run, swim or cycle while fundraising at iconic events across Australia.
How your gift helps
Your gift enables Canteen to be in a young person’s corner with whatever support they need when cancer crashes into their life. Young people impacted by cancer are up to six times more likely to face mental health issues like anxiety or depression than their peers. After just six months of support from Canteen, almost two thirds of young people report improvements in their mental health and overall wellbeing.
