Every. Single. Penny.
We are grateful for every donation to the V Foundation. From a 10-year-old boy collecting donations instead of birthday gifts, to the generous corporations and larger philanthropic donors, we cherish all of our supporters.
100% of direct donations to the V Foundation benefit cancer research and programs. This means every single penny of your donation goes to cancer research and not operating expenses.
The V Foundation still has expenses and fundraising costs, but they’re covered by an endowment fund. Your donations do not support the endowment fund unless you request it.
The V Foundation runs very efficiently. For every dollar raised, the V Foundation spends $0.05 on fundraising expenses (covered by the endowment). This is well below the nonprofit standard of spending no more than $0.35 on fundraising expenses for every dollar raised.
In 2018, we received our eighth consecutive 4-star designation from Charity Navigator, indicating the V Foundation is in the highest category of rated charities and in the top 3% of all charities evaluated.
Thank you for supporting the V Foundation, for believing in the power of cancer research and for giving generously to help save more lives.
