Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

We envision a nation in which everyone can get the health care they need.

Partnering with generous donors, healthcare providers and pharmacies, PAN provides the underinsured population access to the healthcare treatments they need to best manage their conditions and focus on improving their quality of life.

We have an administrative fee of 5%. This means $0.95 of every dollar will go directly to helping our patients. For the last eight years, less than one penny of each dollar contributed to PAN was spent on fundraising. PAN's professional, compassionate case managers help patients throughout the United States and its territories receive needed treatments through nearly 70 disease-specific programs. PAN is governed by an 11-member board of directors, who are nationally recognized experts in medicine, public health, pharmaceuticals, health care administration, finances and nonprofit management. To connect patients with a compassionate community that can help them deal with the physical and emotional complexities of their disease, PAN aligns with leading patient advocacy groups.

In 2017, PAN provided more than $525 million in financial assistance to nearly 262,500 patients.

Since its founding in 2004, PAN has provided nearly 1 million underinsured patients with over $3 billion in financial assistance, through close to 70 disease-specific programs.

Board Leadership Practices

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
