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

Visit NFCR’s online crowdfunding platform, where you can create a customized Rose Fund page. You can add a photo, story, and any other posts you wish to share about your loved one. You can then share the page with family and friends so they may participate in your tribute and easily make online contributions to support cancer research. Anonymous donations are accepted, and offline gifts received by mail can also be shown 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 our staff that you would like to establish a Rose Fund. We will ensure that 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 our team at for assistance.
