Create a Rose Fund

Memorialize a loved one while supporting cancer research by creating a Rose Fund at the National Foundation for Cancer Research (NFCR). With no minimum contributions required or expiration date, Rose Funds provide a lasting memorial tribute to a beloved family member or friend. All donations received via a Rose Fund are tax-deductible. A Rose Fund may be created in one of two ways:

Online Rose Fund

Use NFCR’s online GoFundMe platform. This platform allows you to add photos and a tribute story to personalize the Rose Fund page. You will receive a link to email to family and friends, so they may view the page and easily make online contributions. Anonymous online contributions are accepted and donations received by mail (offline) will be added to the total amount raised on the Rose Fund webpage. NFCR staff is available to assist you with creating and customizing your online Rose Fund page.

Traditional Rose Fund

Create a Rose Fund by traditional mail. Simply notify us that you would like to establish a Rose Fund, and we will ensure you have what you need to gather contributions by supplying paper donation forms to share with family and friends. This type of Rose Fund also lasts indefinitely, and contributions may be collected at any time.

If you’d like to support a Rose Fund that exists offline, please complete your donation here and indicate the name of the fund or contact Deena Faruki at for assistance.
