Charity & Fundraising
KWF Kankerbestrijding   NL

The Dutch Cancer Society (DCS) is a nation-wide organization for cancer related work in the Netherlands. We are founded in 1949 at the instigation of Queen Wilhelmina. Nowadays her granddaughter Princess Beatrix is our patron.

Our aim

Less cancer, more cure, and a better quality of life for cancer patients.

Our vision

Scientific research is the basis for combating cancer and actually improving survival and patients' quality of life. We can only reduce cancer rates by understanding the disease better, which is why we invest in research, among other things. We also ensure that the knowledge gained is transferred to ‘the bed’, to patients. And invest in scientific research to increase our knowledge of psychosocial problems.

The DCS' headquarter is located in Amsterdam; our professional staff amounts to around 200 persons. Over 100.000 volunteers support the Dutch Cancer Society whether it comes to local or nation-wide fundraising, scientific or policy advice in several councils and committees.

We can rely on nearly 1.500 local committees that organize fundraising activities e.g. our annual door-to-door campaign to raise funds for the fight against cancer.
The DCS is supported by over 1 million donors. We receive no government money.

Beating cancer as soon as possible

That’s why we fund and guide scientific research, influence policy, and share our knowledge about cancer and its treatment. We encourage our stakeholders and the public to do everything possible to help bring about the day when no-one else has to die of cancer. We’re getting there together.
