Donate Cryptocurrency to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation

The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation is the largest patient advocacy funder of pediatric brain tumor research. Since 1991, we have helped fund nearly $50 million in scientific discovery and played a leading role in fostering innovation in the field.

Although recent discoveries fueled by PBTF donors have unlocked new treatment options, the reality is that pediatric brain tumors remain the deadliest and most common form of cancer in kids under 15. PBTF is laser-focused on funding and advocating for pediatric-first brain tumor research and serving as patient families’ first stop on their child’s brain tumor journey.

Now you can support PBTF by making a charitable gift in Bitcoin, Ethereum or other leading cryptocurrencies. Making a cryptocurrency donation to support PBTF will make an immediate difference in children’s lives. When you support PBTF using crypto, your donation is converted at current market value to US$ and the value is made available to PBTF to improve scientific collaboration and innovation around the world, accelerate the development of targeted brain tumor treatments for children, and provide patient families with the resources and community of support they need from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.
