CCF Ltd as Trustee for the CCF Trust

Conquer Cystic Fibrosis


Conquer Cystic Fibrosis (CCF) is a completely volunteer based, not for profit organisation, that relies on the generosity of our family, friends and generous individuals and corporate sponsors to achieve our fundraising goals.

Since our first Grand Ball in 2002, CCF has raised more than $3.1M (profit).

All the money we raise is donated to research and services. Our primary beneficiaries have been the Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust (ACFRT) and Cystic Fibrosis WA.  Since 2002 CCF has contributed to no less than 25 research projects and includes the "CFWA Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Capel Vale PhD Scholarship Award". This award provided $30,000 to a doctor who was studying endpoint predictors for structural lung damage in CF. This work was considered extremely important as it will help keep young lungs healthy for longer, and delay or prevent structural lung damage in children in the years ahead. It is widely known that it is easier to keep young lungs healthy than treat diseased lungs, so the importance of this research cannot be over emphasised.

People living with CF around the world have significantly benefited from the research we've helped to fund. During the past 10 years, Australian CF researchers have led more than 55 research projects. CCF has donated over $2.5M to these projects.

CCF's contribution to funding this vital Australian research has made possible such treatments as hypertonic saline. This is now a treatment for CF used around the world, and was the direct result of the work completed by Australian researchers that was funded by the ACFRT.

CCF has recently partnered with the Institute of Respiratory Health to develop the Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Research Program.  CCF has committed $1M over the next five years to fund three new post graduate PhD Scholarships.  These scholarships will foster careers in Cystic Fibrosis research and improve the life of everyone living with CF. 

The Scholarships are:

  • Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Advanced Clinical PhD Scholarship
  • Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Allied Health Professional PhD Scholarship
  • Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Scientist PhD Scholarship

Everyone at CCF is thrilled that the money we have raised is being used to contribute to these very important research projects right here in Western Australia!  The efforts of all the volunteers at CCF make these advances in research and treatment for all people with CF possible.

Unfortunately there is no cure for Cystic Fibrosis but with your ongoing support this is something that we hope to change.

Thank you for your support.
