Support cancer research

NFCR promotes and facilitates collaboration among scientists to accelerate the pace of discovery from bench to bedside.

Very few organizations are committed to the innovative and cutting-edge scientific research that the National Foundation for Cancer Research funds.  NFCR’s investments in basic cancer research have helped produce breakthroughs in cancer genetics, precision medicine, metastasis research, anti-angiogenic therapies, nanomedicine, immunotherapy, and more.

 

For more than 40 years, we have provided the precious seed funding that has allowed researchers to pursue the next big thing in cancer research.  Were it not for NFCR’s commitment to this high-risk, high-reward science, these projects would not likely have succeeded.

 

To accomplish this mission, the National Foundation for Cancer Research is committed to the highest ethical standards of charitable excellence and accounting transparency.  NFCR meets the standards of the most prestigious private rating organization, the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance, a nationally recognized charity watchdog.  In addition, NFCR meets the rigorous requirements of all State Attorneys General who monitor charities, as well as the stringent qualifications for the Federal government’s Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). 

 

Each and every year, NFCR is audited by an independent, certified public accounting firm.  This independent audit requires compliance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and the guidelines issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).  NFCR has always received the highest form of audit opinion.  A complete copy of our annual report and financial statement can be publicly viewed and downloaded from our website at http://www.nfcr.org/financials.

 

We at NFCR are proud of the high quality of our research programs and education services that include information about healthy living and cancer prevention.

 

Our commitment to provide flexible research funding to proven scientists to explore the most innovative ideas is what sets NFCR apart.  For over 40 years, we have successfully fostered synergistic collaboration among scientists so that laboratory discoveries can be investigated and made available to patients in the shortest amount of time possible.
