This pledge to our donors sets us apart, and it helps us raise the critical funds we spend so wisely each year toward the goal of ending cancer. We do not collect a fee or percentage from donations to support our operations. Rather, we rely on an endowment fund to cover our operating expenses.

Fund a Need – Endowment Giving

100 CENTS ON THE DOLLAR

The V Foundation is dedicated to awarding 100% of all cash donations to cancer research. To cover our operating expenses, we rely on an endowment fund created by the V Foundation Board of Directors nearly two decades ago. Since that time, Board members and long-time supporters of the Foundation have made contributions specifically to fund the endowment. We think of our endowment as the “100% Fund,” because it is used to cover ongoing operations. We use what is needed for our very low overhead, and the remaining assets and investment returns are retained to support future success. And that success comes from more funds raised, and more funds invested in cutting-edge research.

A GIFT TO THE ENDOWMENT IS A WISE INVESTMENT

A strong endowment provides us with financial stability and allows our Board to “think outside the box” when considering fundraising opportunities. During 2018, we will be strengthening the V Foundation endowment to keep us growing.  and investing 100% of all direct donations to research. We do not plan to raise enough funds to keep the Foundation running forever. We fully believe that cures to cancer are forthcoming. Our plan is to raise $40 million, enough funds to run a strong but lean organization until that day arrives. When it does, we will spend any remaining monies on the needs of cancer survivors who have been cured.

A GIFT TO THE ENDOWMENT HAS HIGH RETURNS

The return on a strong endowment comes from its ability to cover all of our operating and fundraising costs. That enables us to spend ALL of our direct donations and ALL of our event proceeds on our mission. 100 cents on the dollar is a powerful incentive for giving, and a strong endowment builds our ability to make more grants and make curing cancer a reality.
