Children’s Cancer Recovery Recognized as Top Charity To Donate To
More than 85% of budget dedicated to charitable programs
(Harrisburg, PA – February 9, 2012) – Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting children with cancer, today announced that it has been recognized as one of the Top 10 most inquired about charities by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs.
According to the study, Children’s Cancer Recovery spends more than 85 percent of its budget on charitable programs or 70 to 90 cents of every dollar. This amount far surpasses the other organizations listed in the study who spent more than half of their budget on fundraising expenses and management fees.
“Our mission is to help all people prevent and survive cancer through integrated cancer care. When you make a donation to our organization, your money is helping to do just that,” said Greg Anderson, Founder and President of Children’s Cancer Recovery.
“We take pride in the fact that our sponsors’ donations will be spent on charitable programs, as opposed to fundraising or management costs,” Anderson added.
For nearly 30 years, Children’s Cancer Recovery has been assisting children under the age of 18 and their families who are facing the hardships of a cancer diagnosis. The foundation focuses on improving the mental, social and emotional well-being of these families while helping to minimize the devastation that cancer can cause. Some of the programs include Bear-Able Gifts, Helping Hands Fund, Camp Scholarships, and International Aid.
