I scheduled a pickup from the cancer federation and had everything in my garage with some person items that I was not donating. They were to pick up my donation from my front door. Ran my daughter to school with garage door left open. Came home to put everything out. While gone they came and took everything out of my garage, in addition to some personal items that were not to be donated. I made a phone call and they are bringing everything back.Also no receipt was left. Nothing was labeled CF. They should have never taken my stuff, nor entered my garage.

Too many of my family members have died. I pray to the Lord that my donation will make a difference.

I read this group passes over 95% of every donation to cancer… and that included charge card fees, etc. They have virtually zero overhead. Pretty cool.

There are so many overpaid CEO’s in the US as well as in the nonprofit world. I like that is an unpaid group of people that get things done.

I am still grieving the loss of my husband to cancer. When my friend told me about this group and how they don’t waste money on salaries or administration, I gladly used them as my “in lieu of flowers”. I feel like I am helping truly find a cure…

I have been in the nonprofit sector for a long time and involved with many organizations. I am glad I found the American Cancer Federation to donate to. It often seems that nonprofits in this realm can get bloated with high overhead. I love what these guys are doing. I will donate again.

My friend passed last month so I looked up Cancer Research organizations to donate to. I found ACF and made an online donation with a note for her family. Within an hour they emailed her a personal note of sympathy along with mine. If these are volunteers, other organizations need to follow suit. Good job!

I’m tired of “Big Cancer” and the lock that Big Pharma has on it. It’s great that this nonprofit funds traditional cutting-edge cancer research like immunotherapy and also alternative type research. Who knows where the cures will come from, but I feel like I am covering all the bases by donating to American Cancer Federation.

I like knowing all my money is going towards Cancer Research and not administrative costs or huge salaries. As someone who is passionate about cancer research and who does a lot of research before I donate my money, trust me, this is unusual. Well done, ACF!

As CEO and founder of the American Cancer Federation, I am very excited to change the way Nonprofits work. Leading an all-volunteer team is very exciting and rewarding. Almost every donated dollar goes directly to Curing Cancer, by virtually eliminating our overhead, which is the new way to run a nonprofit. No salaries here, just results. Thank you all for making this a continuing reality.

I was happy to find such a progressive all volunteer Cancer Non-profit to donate to. I have lost several family members to cancer and like knowing all my money is going towards cancer research.
