What Happens if a Project Doesn’t Reach its Goal?​

We support a “keep what you raise,” or “flexible,” crowdfunding model. If campaigns remain partially funded after the fundraising term, all monies will be transferred to the designated campaign, and no monies will be returned to donors. Likewise, if the project reaches or supersedes its funding goal, all monies, including those in excess of the funding goal, will be transferred to the designated campaign.

How do I Know That Campaigns are Credible and Worthy of Donations?​

Music Beats Cancer implements a vetting process for each biotech company seeking to raise funds on our portal. We support campaigns that demonstrate realistic evidence of addressing critical gaps in cancer treatment, and that have successfully raised funds through the peer-reviewed programs. We cannot guarantee the future success of campaigns posted to our portal. We provide honest appraisals of promising technologies that can make a real world difference in how cancer is treated.
