This rating was published 07/01/2022 and includes data from FY2021, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Founded in 1991, the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation exists to raise money to fund pediatric cancer research. Our focus is to fund research which will lead to the elimination of pediatric cancer worldwide. In addition to funding various pre-clinical projects, the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation has developed The Sunshine Project. This is an innovative collaboration of the nation's top doctors and researchers with one goal: to fast-track new treatments and increase the survival rate of children battling cancer. Since 2005, we have implemented the groundwork necessary to introduce less toxic, more targeted drugs into clinical trials. New compounds and combinations of drugs are constantly being tested through our Sunshine Lab and hold great promise for children who have not experienced positive results under the standard treatment protocol.
