Cure Cancer the first Aussie charity part of Microsoft Rewards

Microsoft will match all donations made through the Rewards program for a limited time.

Cure Cancer has become the first Aussie charity to accept reward donations through the Microsoft Rewards scheme, Microsoft today confirmed.

This means that players can now choose to exchange Microsoft Rewards points for a donation to the charity.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Xbox through Microsoft Rewards to help fund crucial cancer research,” Cure Cancer CEO Nikki Kinloch said. “ This partnership where our core values align is incredibly important. We both believe that technology can and should be a force for good and that meaningful innovation can and will contribute to a brighter world. We are fortunate to see this every day in our innovative young scientists on the front-line of cancer research.”

Better still, Microsoft has confirmed it will match all Microsoft Rewards donations made to Cure Cancer from now until 30 June.

Cure Cancer has raised $75.7m AUD to date as part of efforts to support more than 534 lifesaving research grants across all cancer types.
