Start A Cure


Via CrowdfundInsider:

Start A Cure is the world’s first patient focused research crowdfunding platform to be entirely directed at cancer.

Start A Cure is a crowdfunding for cancer research project created by the national patient advocacy nonprofit, Malecare. Founded in 1998, Malecare has grown to become America’s largest men’s cancer support and advocacy national nonprofit corporation.

Start A Cure launched on March 25, 2003 with a call to action to a small portion of our cancer researcher contacts to upload projects for funding and launches out of beta on June 1, 2013.

Listening to its large cancer survivor community, Malecare learned about the large untapped pool of potential donors who want more control over where their money goes. Right or wrong, these potential donors are cynical about the way research projects are selected by government agencies and foundations for funding. They would rather choose specific projects to fund and have the opportunity to connect directly with the scientists guiding those projects. Many are also unhappy about the small percentage of donated dollars that researchers receive from government and charitable foundations. 


Hope. Honor. Heal.
