Funding research that leads to curing childhood cancers is at the heart of everything we do at the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF).
Established in 1982, our founders - parents, doctors, friends, and community leaders – had a common vision … “To bring hope and lifesaving treatments to children battling cancer.”
Inspired by the ground-breaking research of Dr. Mitchell Cairo the Foundation quickly grew beyond its Orange County roots. Since 1982, we’ve raised over $30 million for cutting edge pediatric cancer research. This research has led to continuing improvements in the care, quality of life and survival rates of children with malignant diseases. We invite you to read about some of these important discoveries. Despite significant advancements over the past 30 years, cancer still claims more children’s lives than asthma, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and AIDS combined. We’re diligent in our quest to give every child a cancer-free future, which is why PCRF has awarded more than $30 million in research grants.
Centennial Farm Foundation works with community volunteers, plus the management and staff of the OC Fair & Event Center, to assist with planning, development and operations of Centennial Farm.
After Centennial Farm was founded in 1989, the Foundation was organized in 1991 to raise support for education programs offered at the farm. The foundation solicits, accumulates and disburses funds to operate Centennial Farm and other agriculturally and youth-related education programs and exhibits of the OC Fair & Event Center.
