Cancer research also relies on donations

Each and every donation to cancer research benefits all of us.
The ultimate goal of cancer research is to save lives by advancing knowledge, leading to the adoption of preventive measures and the development of increasingly effective treatments.
Every discovery, including the most important ones, is the result of the work of many people and many specialties, all of which are essential to success.
All of this provides an idea of the complexity of research and the amount of resources required.

Who supports cancer research

Research proceeds to the extent that it is supported by everyone, not only economically but also and above all culturally and in terms of motivation.
In our country, cancer research is funded by public institutions, private entities and donations from individual citizens, all of which are necessary, because none of them is sufficient on its own. 

How can I contribute to cancer research?

The Pezcoller Foundation originated from the will of Dr. Alessio Pezcoller, who after having dedicated his entire life to the care of the patients, decided to continue his work through the Foundation, to which he donated his entire property.
The Foundation's activities, initially possible thanks to this first legacy, have increased over time thanks to donations and bequests from many people who have shared this project to support cancer research.

All donation received by the Foundation are exclusively used for:

  • Scolarship and Research grants for Young Researchers
  • Training and educational activities

The fight against cancer is a common effort from which we can all benefit and to which we can all contribute, each to the extent of our possibilities.
There are several modalities to be used:

  • Testamentary legacies
  • Scolarships: 1 year € 25,000 / 2 years € 50,000
  • Seminars/Educational activities: from € 2,000 to €10,000 each
  • Training Fellowship: € 500 / € 1000 each

But smaller contributions are also welcome, all of which are individually acknowledged and reported on our communication channels.
You can donate using a simple bank transfer, although we would prefer to be contacted directly, in order to understand together with the donor, the best way to value every single contribution.
