Financial Responsibility

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 2019, we received our ninth 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.

The V Foundation has also received the GuideStar Platinum Seal of Transparency in 2020. This distinction comes from providing unbiased information through the GuideStar platform to assist donors and stakeholders in making educated decisions about nonprofits and their work.

Thank you for supporting the V Foundation, for believing in the power of cancer research and for giving generously to help save more lives.
