Dutch Cancer Society
The Dutch Cancer Society is a nation-wide organisation for cancer-related work in the Netherlands.
We spent 80% of our budget to finance cancer research; 20% is spent to public awareness and information, prevention and patient support programmes.
The DCS’ headquater is located in Amsterdam; our professional staff amount to 140 persons
Over 120.000 volunteers support the Dutch Cancer Society whether it comes to local or nation-wide fundraising, scientific or policy advise in several councils and committees..
We could rely on nearly 1600 local committees that organise our annual door-to-door knocking campaign to raise funds for the fight against cancer (annual revenue around € 9 million).
The Dutch Cancer Society is supported by 880.000 donors.
We receive hardly any money from the government.
