  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 1 person is interested


Opportunities available throughout the US.

The purpose of chapters is similar to that of the organization’s mission, i.e., to provide hope for those suffering from pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer through funding cutting edge research, advocating for new and better therapies, and providing support and education for patients, caregivers, and health care professionals. Chapters are organized by geographic location to serve pancreatic disease patients and families by providing various educational, support/
networking, leadership, fundraising and social opportunities on the local level.

A chapter’s main responsibility is to be an advocate for the NPF and pancreatic disease
patients in their state and local communities. Chapter chairs are comprised of individuals who volunteer their time to educate local communities about pancreatic disease, create awareness about the disease and raise vital funds. Our grassroots network is an integral component to the NPF’s mission.

Chapter Responsibilities include:

Each chapter hosts at least 2 events per year, fundraising and patient education
respectively. Turnkey programs have been created over the years by the NPF staff,
who will support the chapter throughout the development process.

Each chapter chair must attend a majority of the monthly chapter chair calls and in their absence, request another chapter board volunteer to attend
Chapter chairs are encouraged to attend and participate in the annual Chapter Chairs’ Retreat

With the help of the Medical Director’s assistance, identify pharmaceutical company reps that may support NPF patient education events and fundraising events.

Mission Statement

The National Pancreas Foundation provides hope for those suffering from pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer through funding cutting edge research, advocating for new and better therapies, and providing support and education for patients, caregivers, and health care professionals.

Description

To fulfill its mission, the NPF raises and manages a charitable foundation from which grants are made directly to researchers seeking to resolve the challenging medical problems of pancreatic diseases. The NPF is the only foundation dedicated to patients who are suffering from all forms of pancreas disease - pediatric pancreatitis, acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, and pancreatic cancer. A National Patient Registry is being developed for individuals suffering the isolating and debilitating conditions associated with pancreatic disease.

The NPF and its founding members and volunteers are committed to maximum efficiency. The Foundation’s goal is to direct as much of our revenue to programs. To achieve this, we rely heavily on the invaluable donations of time, energy, and financial support of the many friends and interested parties who have been touched by the suffering of so many people. Research grant proposals from a wide variety of researchers are solicited. With the help of the Foundation’s Grant Review Council, the NPF makes grants to those whose proposals appear most likely to lead to scientific advancements in the field of pancreatic disease. Founded in 1997, the NPF has given over $4 million to fund 127 groundbreaking research projects.
