Why Donate to PCF
Contribute to the Cure
By the time you read this page, another man will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. It happens every 2.1 minutes. There’s no better time than now to take action in the fight against prostate cancer.
Your generosity is the catalyst of our progress and has helped us generate more than $550 million in prostate cancer research. PCF relies primarily on private contributions to accelerate the world’s most promising research and these donors are determined to fight back.
Through our innovative model of philanthropic investing, we have a history of turning donations into groundbreaking successes. In the 19 years since PCF's establishment:
- PCF has helped add more than 30 promising new medicines to the research pipeline
- The number of FDA-approved treatments for prostate cancer has increased from seven to 13
- We have funded promising nutritional research that promotes good health with simple behavioral changes
We’ve also leveraged donations to generate even more support—multiplying every dollar raised 10 to 20 times by stimulating further research funded by government agencies, pharmaceutical companies and others.
It’s a strong start, but it’s not nearly enough.
We need your help now more than ever, no matter the size:
- Help researchers learn why 1 in 6 men get prostate cancer—and why it is more deadly to some than others
- Help support scientists who are trying to speed new treatments to patients
- Help connect families and clinicians to the latest standard-of-care information
Your donation goes to work quickly. Our innovative fast-track process for grant-making frees investigators to work on breakthroughs instead of paperwork.
