Make a Difference in the World of Women's Cancers
Now is the perfect time to join WCRF in the ongoing fight to better understand and eradicate women’s cancers. Becoming a donor today means you’re taking a stand for the precious lives of women in the world.
When you contribute towards cancer research organizations, here are some tips to ensure that your money gets to 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.
Track the peer publications rate of the research group you donate to. Publications are the metric for tracking a research group’s productivity.
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.
