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

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 typically are 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.

Ever wonder why we don’t have a cure for cancer?

Research is only the first step. The next step is to move that research out of the lab. New discoveries made in the lab require more resources (money) to get them to patients. That’s why we created CANCER FUND.

We’ve already identified over 200 startup companies working on the hard task of getting cancer innovations to patients. And we’re just getting started. Those companies are seeking nearly $2 Billion to bring their innovations to patients. Without our support, those exciting discoveries stay in the lab, won’t save lives, and the research efforts are wasted.

It takes more.

You can help by supporting cancer innovation and honoring your hero as a donor or investor.
