1. What is FundFinder?

We often hear from patients and providers that it’s difficult to track whether a patient assistance program is available. Developed by the PAN Foundation, FundFinder is a free resource that provides this information in one place and notifies you when a disease fund opens at any of the charitable patient assistance foundations.

2. Who created FundFinder?

The PAN Foundation created FundFinder by pulling in information about each disease program’s status from the websites of charitable foundations. In addition to the PAN Foundation, FundFinder tracks information from the following organization’s websites:

 

  • » The Assistance Fund
  • » CancerCare
  • » Good Days
  • » HealthWell
  • » Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
  • » National Organization for Rare Disorders
  • » Patient Advocate Foundation
  • » Patient Services, Inc.

No. FundFinder notifications are purely informational and do not guarantee assistance. All assistance is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis and subject to each foundation’s criteria.

12.  When does FundFinder send notifications?

When you follow a disease fund, you will receive notifications each time a foundation program transitions from a closed to open status.

 

For example, if an assistance program is closed at all charitable foundations, subscribers will receive a notification when that program opens at one of the foundations. Subscribers will also receive notifications for each additional foundation program opening.

13. Does FundFunder track, collect or use any personal or sensitive health information?
