I have a question about donating or about a donation that I have already made. Who do I contact?

You may email info@pcf.org or call 1.800.757.CURE (2873).

Is my donation tax-deductible?

Your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Please note that purchases from the Prostate Cancer Foundation store are not tax-deductible.

What is the Prostate Cancer Foundation's tax ID number?

Our tax id is #95-4418411.

How will the Prostate Cancer Foundation's name appear on my credit card statement?

The Prostate Cancer Foundation will show as "BB *Prostate Cancer FD" on your statement. BB refers to Blackbaud, the company PCF uses to process transactions and host its website.

Is my credit card information secure?

The Prostate Cancer Foundation is committed to ensuring the security of your information. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy and ensure the appropriate use of the information, we have in place appropriate physical, managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect.

We use SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. Credit card numbers are only used for processing payments and are not used for other purposes. Our efforts to protect credit card fraud help protect your financial data security.

This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. This includes a firewall and 24-hour monitoring of site activities by our hosting service provider as well as 128-bit SSL encryption (where allowable by law) on all transaction-oriented operations between you and PCF via our transaction service provider.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use password-protected screen savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must re-enter their password to regain access to your information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers' information is protected. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment, behind a locked cage.

Can I pay by check?

Certainly. Please make the check payable to Prostate Cancer Foundation. Donations can be mailed to:
