Imaging Awareness Matching Gift Campaign
PCRI has been blessed with a $500,000 matching gift program that matches dollar for dollar all donations designated for the “Imaging Awareness Campaign.”
This campaign aims to bring awareness to the fact that a million men every year undergo random needle biopsy of the prostate when imaging with noninvasive multi-parametric MRI is just as accurate. We need to spread this news! Click here to watch a short video that explains how millions of men who undergo PSA screening can be saved from invasive and unnecessary 12-core random needle biopsies. To support this campaign and help men know their options, select "The Imaging Awareness Matching Gift Campaign" under "type of donation" on our donation page.

BEST IN AMERICA CERTIFICATION
The Prostate Cancer Research Institute is certified as “Best in America”by Independent Charities of America and a member of CancerCURE of America.
Independent Charities of America and CancerCURE of America are national associations whose purpose is to represent charities that meet the highest standards of public accountability and program effectiveness.
The Independent Charities “BEST IN AMERICA” Seal of Excellence is awarded to the members of Independent Charities of America and Local Independent Charities of America that have, upon rigorous independent review, been able to certify, document, and demonstrate on an annual basis that they meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness. These standards include those required by the US Government for inclusion in the Combined Federal Campaign, probably the most exclusive fund drive in the world. Of the 1,000,000 charities operating in the United States today, it is estimated that fewer than 50,000, or 5 percent, meet or exceed these standards, and, of those, fewer than 2,000 have been awarded this Seal.
