Encompass Rating System by Charity Navigator


Charity Navigator’s Encompass Rating System evolves on a quarterly basis as we add new measures and indicators, which we call Beacons. Check back often to see how this organization’s score changes.

Charity Navigator provides 501(c)(3) nonprofits with an Encompass Rating when we have available data. Please see the sections below for more information on why this organization is not currently rated.

This organization cannot be evaluated by our Encompass Rating methodology because it files Form 990-N, as allowed by the IRS for charities with less than $50,000 annual revenue.

The lack of a rating for this reason simply means that the organization does not meet our rating criteria. It does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

APCF was established with the vision that minimally invasive technologies could improve the quality of life for patients. We expect to accomplish this by providing patients, especially those in financial need, access to state of the art technologies to diagnose and treat prostate cancer. This will also include a provision of subsidies to organizations that can support patient access to diagnostic services and treatment for prostate cancer, especially for indigent or uninsured patient. APCF health care professionals expect to educate the public to raise awareness and encourage implementation of Yoga/Ayurveda/Nutritional therapies as integrated approaches for combating cancer. Yoga Practitioners will be invited to develop individualized treatments for their clients. These plans include lifestyle recommendations such as diet, herbs, exercise, mindfulness and self-awareness techniques to improve the quality of life.


What are your strategies for making this happen?

Where possible, select a physician who specializes not just in cancer but in the nuances of your specific type of prostate cancer. If you are newly diagnosed, start by consulting your diagnosing doctor, that is, the one who discovered your prostate cancer who may be an expert in the field, or they may refer you to another doctor. Other factors to consider when selecting a doctor: Are they covered by your health insurance? Are they analytical? Compassionate? “bedside manner” align that with your personality? Do they seem interested in making you a partner in this process? Don’t be afraid to shop around and get second or even third opinions. Be careful of random advice, e.g., “surgery is the best” or “radiation is the best” or “eat this herb, and your cancer will be cured.” For accurate information, use data on reputable websites and those that your doctor recommends. Once committed, trust is vital, but continue to be your own advocate: ask questions, do research, and remain curious.


What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

The American Prostate Cancer Foundation's Mission includes education to increase awareness of prostate cancer and the various diagnostic and treatment options available with an emphasis on minimally invasive techniques (MIT) to preserve the quality of life. Since inception, APCF has served as a catalyst, driving growth and advancing the field of focused ultrasound and similar technologies. We are now in a position to prioritize activities to address critical bottlenecks and leverage resources to provide value and measurable impact. APCF expects to increase the efficiency and productivity with the goal of becoming a transformative organization for Men's Health. In the coming years, the formula for success will continue to hinge on the Foundation’s reputation as a trusted, independent and unbiased third-party. We believe our highly skilled team, our Board, Council, members, and donors, will serve as an inspiring force.


How will your organization know if you are making progress?

Contributions from urologists, physicians, patients; pharmaceutical companies, well-wishers and others. Outcomes and data may be shared with nonprofit collaborators and hospitals regarding benefits to the public for advancing the use of MIT.  APC Foundation goals include an instrumental role in connecting, convening and influencing stakeholders, and foster collaboration among them.


What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

The American Prostate Cancer Foundation has created a website and established awareness in social media, Periodic mailings and Word of Mouth Designed, developed, maintained and supported website that provides up-to-date evidence-based information on prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment   Established and promoted a prostate cancer blog for patients to share their experience Provided information pamphlets and brochures to clients in medical offices Held educational conferences and seminars Helped in Networking with other nonprofit organizations Explored partnerships with foundations and other organizations that have similar purposes and goals as APCF APCF has used volunteers and independent contractors as needed to accomplish our goals and objectives. APCF’s services shall be provided initially in Texas, Florida, and Delaware. Once established, APCF plans to expand its services to additional states in the USA. Helped organize support groups
