MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD OF WOMEN'S CANCERS

SUPPORT WITH CONFIDENCE

At WCRF, you can be certain that 90% of your generous contribution is going toward lifesaving research. When you contribute toward cancer research organizations, here are some tips to ensure that your money gets where you want it to go.

  • Donate directly to the organization that actually does the research.
  • Stipulate in your donation that your funds must go to the research you want to support.
  • Stipulate the percentage of overhead you are willing to pay.
  • Stipulate whether you want funds to go to research, or if it is acceptable to go toward other expenses, such as building construction. Cancer centers and hospitals love to include new buildings as part of their “research projects.” This is generally a misuse of research funds in our opinion.
  • Stipulate that if the funds are not used as you directed, they are to be returned to you.
  • Track the peer publications rate of the research group you donate to. Publications are the metric for tracking a research group’s productivity.
