About Us

88 cents

PvC – Players vs. Cancer – brings together gamers to raise awareness and funds for lifesaving cancer research with a shared goal of eradicating cancer.

We know that a gamer’s passion can be contagious. PvC provides opportunities for you to get others excited about defeating all types of cancer for everyone. PvC fundraising efforts benefit the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR).

Where Does Your Donation Go?

The AACR is the first and largest cancer research organization in the world dedicated to preventing and curing ALL types of pediatric and adult cancers. The AACR is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that takes great care in placing your donation where it truly belongs: in the hands of scientists working on breakthroughs in cancer research.

Eighty-eight cents of every dollar raised by the AACR supports cancer research. Where does the other 12 cents go? Rest assured that we’re not spending it on V-Bucks or flashy ad campaigns. It goes toward keeping the lights on.
