Annual Grants Round 2022
For so many of us, 2020/21 has been challenging at Tour de Cure. We continue to feel the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, with many of our events being cancelled, severely reduced in size or postponed, our ability to fundraise has been impacted on many levels.
In this new fundraising environment, we have made some difficult decisions that will impact the way we work and in the future. As a result, Tour de Cure will not be opening the Annual Grants Round during the 2021/22 financial year. We share the disappointment that will be felt across the Research Community, however this change will enable us to build a stronger grants program that in the future can deliver funds to recipients in a more timely manner. This will be achieved by moving to a new fundraising model whereby we shall raise funds throughout each financial year and at the conclusion of that financial year open a grants round in line with the funds already received and then be in a position to distribute. This will allow us to inject the maximum amount of dollars into Cancer Research, Support and Prevention each year with fewer unknowns. Tour de Cure continues to adapt through this period of change, and we are confident we will emerge from this challenging time stronger than ever.
