At Women Supporting Women we are lucky to work with some amazing funders and donors to create the important work we do for those diagnosed with breast cancer on Delmarva. Read on to see how we make the magic happen and keep the hope alive.
Where does the money come from?
In the fiscal year 2016, we had two main sources of funds. Our biggest sources were Women Supporting Women Events as well as events put on by a third party. The second source of funds came from corporate partners in the form of sponsorships, civic and individual marketing campaigns and unrestricted education grants. In addition, WSW receives donations that added to the fiscal revenue. Our organization does not receive funding from any national breast cancer organizations.
Where does the money go?
We are committed to ensuring that our contributed funds are spent in a prudent and responsible manner. Monies go toward promoting awareness of our organization, supporting our local community and educating them on breast cancer. Approximately 80% of all funds are put back into programs for those on the Eastern Shore of Maryland who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. We are pleased to report that only 18% was used for administrative duties in fiscal year 2016. Board Members and volunteers do not receive any renumeration or coverage of expenses. Transfer of funds require legitimization by the board.
