Mission and Goals
To fulfill its mission, the National Pancreas Foundation provides research grants on an annual basis that are made directly to researchers to provide ground-breaking research for pancreas disease. NPF is the only foundation dedicated to patients who are suffering from all forms of pancreas disease – pancreatic cancer, acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, pediatric pancreatitis and FCS.
NPF and its Board of Directors and volunteers are committed to maximum efficiency with over $.93 cents of every dollar impacting patient programs and research, making NPF one of the most efficient charities in the United States. To achieve this, we rely heavily on the invaluable donations of time, energy, and financial support.
Research grant proposals from a wide variety of researchers are solicited. With the help of the Foundation’s Grant Review Committee, NPF makes grants to those whose proposals are most likely to lead to scientific advancements in the field of pancreatic disease.
