Our path to making BCR a reality is clear: 

We aim to meet with the signatories to The Giving Pledge as they have the financial capacity and the philanthropic mindset to purchase an established bank an instantly make BCR a reality 

at the same time 

We aim to raise public support to prove to the signatories to The Giving Pledge that there is a market for BCR, to prove that the world wants BCR. Proving the market will make any investment decision easier, the more support we get the easier their decision will be. 

If you wish to help all you need to do is 

Tell Someone Else

We recognize our plan is hugely ambitious, however our ambition pales in comparison to the benefits of living in a world without cancer. 


Creative capitalism takes this interest in the fortunes of others and ties it to our interest in our own fortunes in ways that help advance both.
— Bill Gates

The Giving Pledge

The Giving Pledge is a commitment by the world’s wealthiest individuals and families to dedicate the majority of their wealth to philanthropy.

So far, 139 high-net-worth households have pledged $365 Billion or $365,000,000,000.00

As such, it is clear that the Giving Pledge provides the best opportunity to raise the capital required to purchase an existing bank and instantly make BCR a reality.
