Cancer Research America – NFCR

Cancer Research America – NFCR is the name of the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) and the ICA State Employee Campaign programs for the National Foundation for Cancer Research. Government employees can generously allocate a portion of their paycheck to go to NFCR by selecting Cancer Research America – CFC #11267 – as their charity of choice and select an amount of money to donate per paycheck. NFCR funds leading cancer researchers throughout the United States and the funding provided by NFCR has led to important breakthroughs and will continue to do so. The contributions from participants in the Combined Federal Campaign and ICA State Employee Campaign allow NFCR to fight for a goal we all share: a cancer-free America.


GoodDeedSeats is more than just a sports and concert tickets website. That’s because they donate $5 from the profits of every order to the National Foundation for Cancer Research when using code DONATECANCER at checkout. So not only can you find a huge selection of premium sports, theater and concert tickets for events across North America, but you can also do a good deed by ordering from GoodDeedSeats because $5 from your order will go to charity!

Rose Fund

The National Foundation for Cancer Research can establish a Rose Fund in the name of the person you would like to honor or remember. As well as honoring their life, it will also contribute to further advances in cancer research. A Rose Fund can be established with any amount you would like to start a fund with. It also provides you with the flexibility to give whenever you would like to. There are no minimums or monthly requirements to donate to a fund. Anybody can donate or raise money for the Rose Fund now and as far into the future as they wish. We make sure that all donors who choose to be kept informed know how much has been raised for the Fund. We use the money you raise on fulfilling our mission to find better treatments and cures for cancer.

The Lucy Fund

Even though over 90% of cancer mortalities are due to metastatic cancer — cancer that spreads from its original location to vital organs within the body — less than 5% of current cancer funding supports research geared towards understanding the mechanisms of metastasis. The Lucy Fund was created to lessen this statistical discrepancy, with hopes that one day researchers will find a way to make cancer a chronic, not deadly, disease.


Your donation will help fund groundbreaking cancer research, in honor/memory of your loved ones. For any gift over $10, we will send a beautiful, specially-designed card to the person of your choice to let them know a donation has been made in their honor. The image to the right is a preview of this honor card.

When filling out the form, put the name of the person you are honoring or memorializing under “Honoree Name” and the name of the person you would like us to send the card to under “Full Name and Address for Card Recipient”. Card cannot be processed if any of these two fields is left empty.

NFCR has been setting up designated and restricted fund programs for over 40 years. There is no finer way to create a legacy and keep a loved one’s life at the forefront of the battle to find a cure for cancer than creating a fund that will help Research to find a Cure.
