About Young Adult Cancer Canada:
Founded in 2000, Young Adult Cancer Canada (YACC) is an organization established to eliminate the isolation for young adults with cancer. YACC’s mission is to build a community of young adults diagnosed with cancer that provides information, support, skills and the opportunity to live and love life. YACC recognizes that young adults experience cancer differently from other age groups. As young adults are starting their careers, or starting their own families, issues like finances and fertility can be uniquely important.
YACC operates a number of programs that contribute to this mission of building a community of young adults. Retreat Yourself, YACC’s original face-to-face program, consists of two retreats that provide a camp-like, community experience for young adults. Other programs include a survivors’ conference, an online community, and various advocacy and education initiatives. YACC’s main fundraising event is Shave for the Brave, in which participants raise funds by shaving their heads in solidarity with young adults with cancer. In F2014, over 68% of YACC’s revenues came from the Shave for the Brave campaign.
In F2014, YACC’s administrative costs were 17% of revenues, while fundraising costs were 24% of donations. YACC has funding reserves of $336k, which cover 52% of annual program costs.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by YACC. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
