Financial Statements and Policies

The mission of the Prevent Cancer Foundation® is to empower people to stay ahead of cancer through prevention and early detection.

The Prevent Cancer Foundation is the only U.S. 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization solely dedicated to cancer prevention and early detection.

Since 1985, the Prevent Cancer Foundation has carried out its mission by focusing its work in four key areas:

  • Research: Funding research that helps increase insight into these diseases and allows us to understand how to prevent cancer or detect it early, when successful treatment is more likely.
  • Education: Educating people about how they can prevent cancer or detect it early through healthy lifestyle choices, vaccinations and routine screenings.
  • Outreach: Reaching out to communities through programs that allow us to fund nationally and act locally.
  • Advocacy: Engaging lawmakers and regulators through education and advocacy to promote the enactment of laws and regulations that support cancer research, prevention and early detection.

We are committed to providing financial accountability and transparency to our donors, advocates, sponsors and supporters. Our sources of support include:

  • Individual giving
  • Corporate support
  • Special events
  • Pharmaceutical support

The Prevent Cancer Foundation establishes partnerships with those who share our commitment to cancer prevention and early detection, including universities and medical schools, businesses and corporations, and the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. By working together, we can imagine a world where cancer is preventable, detectable and beatable for all!
