What Makes Our Breast Cancer Charity Different?
“I am one of the lucky ones – a cancer survivor. I am alive today because of the type of research funded by CTRF.” – Corinne Wood, Former Lieutenant Governor of Illinois and former CTRF Board Member
At CTRF, our breast cancer charity carefully targets only the most innovative and promising breast cancer research studies. See below to read more about what makes our breast cancer charity so unique in its field:
We Focus on Immediate Results
Like our motto says, our breast cancer charity is interested in changing the face of cancer now! We center on breast cancer research that can have an immediate positive impact on patients today, instead of 5 or 10 years down the road.
We Fund Research ONLY
Your breast cancer donations go towards research programs only – not outreach or education. Although we recognize those as important areas, CTRF focuses specifically on research, again assuring that your dollars go towards finding cures and preventions for breast cancer as soon as possible.
We Fund an Innovative Variety of Initiatives
Our breast cancer charity funds an innovative variety of promising cancer research initiatives. Our breast cancer research grants carefully balance conventional therapies (such as chemotherapy, radiation and surgery) with the best of reputable complementary medicines (such as nutrition, mind-body work, biofeedback and more).
We Support Only the Most Promising Research Endeavors
Our breast cancer research grants fund some of the most cutting-edge research trials in the world. We specifically concentrate on clinically-based studies that have passed the test tube stage. This means that these studies are now actually ready to have a significant impact on cancer patients. We also monitor all studies we fund to ensure fiscal responsibility and true patient impact.
Your Dollars Truly Make a Difference
Thanks to generous expense underwriting, 99 cents of every dollar donated to CTRF goes directly to cancer research programs! You won’t find a ratio like this in any other breast cancer charity.
We’re Humane Charity Approved
Our breast cancer charity only funds research initiatives that do not make use of laboratory animals.
CTRF is all about funding research that makes a difference. Besides visiting our breast cancer donations page today, there are a variety of ways you can also encourage others to make gifts to support breast cancer research.
In 2005, over 40% of our donations came from special events and third-party fundraisers combined. Prominent organizations such as “Cancer Sucks”, Allstate, and more have all helped contribute to our cause! If you’d like to hold a fundraiser and designate the proceeds to benefit CTRF breast cancer charity, please contact us today online or call 1-888-221-CTRF.
As always, we appreciate volunteers to assist with all of our fundraising efforts throughout the year. And you may find it hard to believe, but if you visit any of these popular online shopping destinations, CTRF breast cancer charity will receive a small portion of the sale. That’s right – your purchases at major stores from Target to Amazon can also be breast cancer research donations. Every little bit counts.
Another creative option for those thoroughly investing in supporting cutting-edge breast cancer research is to participate in a planned giving program. And if you’re interested in major breast cancer research donations, we can even help you name and follow the progress of your very own breast cancer research project.
Founded in 1991, CTRF (Cancer Treatment Research Foundation) is now one of the premier cancer research funding institutes in the world. We are proud to support some of the most advanced research programs today in conventional, integrative and complementary medicine.
