What’s the difference between DONATING and INVESTING?
DONATIONS to cancer charities are gifts of money, goods or services to support their ongoing efforts in line with their mission. Most non-profit cancer organizations accept gifts under tax-exempt legal structures such as a 501(c)(3) and donations may be tax deductible. Whether, you donate $1 or $1,000,000, you would expect to receive $0 in return. Donations to support cancer innovation are made through our non-profit partner, BioAccel. You can read more about them and their mission at www.bioaccel.org.
INVESTMENTS are intended to generate returns, including impact, interest earnings, or capital appreciation. However, you could receive back the dollars you invest, possibly even more than you invested. For example, when you invest $1 or $1,000,000, you may expect to receive more than the $1 or $1,000,000 you invested. CANCER FUND is NOT a charity; it is a for-profit investment firm supporting startup companies working on cancer innovations. Unlike donations, investments into CANCER FUND I are typically not tax-deductible.
EXPECTATIONS are a critical part of the difference between donating and investing. By investing in CANCER FUND I, we aim to generate a positive return on your investment.
How we generate a return on your investment.
CANCER FUND I invests in early-stage companies bringing cancer innovation to patients. We generate revenue when the companies we invest in are bought by larger companies, have an initial public offering (IPO), or experience some other similar event that allows the Fund to sell our ownership interest… hopefully for more than our initial investment.
When that happens, we either reinvest those dollars to continue growing our portfolio and increasing our impact, or distribute the gains to investors like you.
There are many different scenarios and the illustration above shows a range of potential outcomes. Because these investments are so high risk, it’s possible that all of them could fail and our investors could lose their entire investment… that’s scenario A. Our target is Scenario C, where we earn roughly three times the amount invested in return for supporting these companies. In scenario C, your $500 investment in CANCER FUND I might return about $1,500… roughly three times the amount you invested.
