I think the people in this foundation who have a heart for this cause are interested in doing good. However, though they say in general what they are doing with your money they are not forthcoming with what percent they are spending toward patient needs vs expenses vs research which makes we wonder whether I or my friends should donate any additional funds.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Replace the director who seriously overreacted to feedback about an event she organized and intentionally caused strife for a stage 4 pancreatic cancer patient who attended.

Unfortunately this person who wrote this review is not a donor of NPCF, and only attended one event. She informed NPCF of what she considered a poor experience at annual event, and we refunded her tickets for 16 people. None of the other people included in her group felt the same way she did. Our financials are available online and anyone can look up what percentage goes where in our organization. We have assisted over 80 families keep their roof over their head, electricity on, and food on their tables while going through this devastating disease. We realize not everyone is going to agree with our mission or our goals and encourage everyone to donate to the organization that fits best with your vision.
