How You Can Help
The National Center for Health Research and its Cancer Prevention and Treatment Fund have been designated as one of America’s best charities because we are audited every year and keep our fundraising costs and administrative costs extremely low – less than 3%! That means that your donation is spent on programs to help adults and children, not on annoying telemarketers, mailings, advertisements, or fancy events.
We’ve also been designated as a top-ranked “Great Nonprofit,” based on ratings by those who know our work directly and indirectly.
New medical research is being completed every week and expert opinions change frequently. We scrutinize all of it and find out what prevention strategies and treatments are best, and for whom. We accept NO funding from drug companies or other sources that could influence our work and compromise our integrity. That’s why so many people turn to us when they need help.
We can be independent of bias and corporate influence because most of our funding comes from individual donations. We hope you will add us to your list of favorite charities, by making a donation to either the National Center for Health Research or our Cancer Prevention and Treatment Fund. Your tax-free donation will enable us to do more to help people across the country reduce their chances of getting cancer and other diseases and get safer, more effective treatments. Contributions can be made by check or online.

Levels of Giving
Donations of any size are welcome. Your support makes a difference! Here are some examples of how you might want to designate your donations – but if you have other ideas, just let us know:
- $5,000 can be a “Legacy” gift to pay for a one-semester Fellowship named in honor of someone whose legacy you’d like us to continue. For example, you can honor a loved one who died from cancer with a Fellowship named after him or her that helps improve treatment for cancer patients.
- $2,500 can support our work with doctors across the country to improve the medical treatment of children and adults.
- $1,000 can support our efforts to keep dangerous chemicals and products out of our homes and communities.
- $ 100 – $500 will help us keep dangerous prescription drugs and medical devices off the market.
- $ 40-$100 can support our Online Health Helpline, providing individual assistance to everyone with medical and prevention questions, for at least one day.
Making a donation through our secure server is fast and easy, and when we receive your donation, we will send you an acknowledgement in the mail for tax purposes. If you’d like the donation to honor someone, we can send an acknowledgement to that person as well! If you’d like to make a donation in memory of someone, let us know who you’d like us to notify.

If you donate online, your donation automatically goes to the National Center for Health Research, unless you want to designate the donation for the Cancer Prevention and Treatment Fund, or you can pick another health topic if you prefer.
Your generous donation of $125 or more will enroll you in our Circle of Friends. Contributions of $250-999 will enroll you in our Leadership Circle. Donations of $1,000 or more will enroll you in the President’s Circle.
