Where your money goes

Over the past 23 years, the Mother’s Day Classic Foundation (MDCF) has raised $37.95 million for life-saving breast cancer research.

Since the Mother’s Day Classic started in 1998, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer has increased from 84% to 91%. Research is making a difference, but there is still a long way to go.The Mother’s Day Classic raises funds through community fundraising, online fundraising, donations and registration fees. Once event and administration costs have been deducted, all proceeds are donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to fund life-changing research. MDCF endeavours to keep costs low, so as much as possible can be donated.

National Breast Cancer Foundation

The Mother’s Day Classic Foundation is proud, over the last 23 years, to be the largest single donor to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). NBCF is Australia’s leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research. Their mission is simple, to stop deaths from breast cancer. NBCF is committed to identifying, funding and championing world-class research - research that will help to detect tumours earlier, improve treatment outcomes, and ultimately save lives. NBCF has raised over $181 million to fund 557 world-class breast cancer research projects in Australia, all thanks to generous community fundraisers.
