Circle of Courage

The National Pancreas Foundation (NPF) has established a special individual giving program to recognize those who have given $1000 or more in a single year, or who have made a consecutive multi-year commitment to the NPF. The program is known as Circle of Courage, for individuals dedicated to supporting the NPF’s life-saving mission of research, education, and advocacy.

Fundamental to our comprehensive approach to fighting pancreatic diseases, these gifts support:

  • Maintaining and growing a robust National Patient Registry
  • Ensuring that federal funding for research of all pancreas diseases, including pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis, is a national priority through government affairs and advocacy
  • Providing innovative and easily accessible information and resources to patients and families, such as our Animated Pancreas Patient Program
  • Designating grant money directly to researchers seeking to resolve the challenging medical problems of pancreatic diseases
  • Helping to grow our seventy-six approved NPF Centers, creating a network of multidisciplinary, patient centered institutions for individuals suffering the isolating and debilitating conditions associated with pancreatic disease
  • Uniting an army of volunteers across the country who increase awareness and move people to take action against pancreatic disease
