A bold idea...when we started Cookies For a Cure, we made a solid promise to the general public—100% of cookie sale profits and any cash donations would go directly to those hospitals and organizations that conduct research into finding a cure for children’s cancer. We'd find another way to cover our operating expenses. And we'd even reimburse credit card fees when purchases and cash donations were made online.
We depend on private donors, Corporate Angels and sponsors to cover everything from rent to daily operating expenses and equipment purchases. These donors are some of our most dedicated supporters. Their investment fuels our long-term mission, our ability to scale as an organization and our promise to continue using 100% of public donations to find a cure for children’s cancer.
Donations from our Angel supporters go directly into our Cookie Jar fund. And we are very grateful for the support of so many. We work diligently not to dip into our Cookie Jar, but to use these funds to effectively grow Cookies For a Cure into a community-based organization to raise awareness and funds for children’s cancer research.
We are proud to state that:
- we have no paid employees, staff or officers. Everyone lovingly volunteers their time and efforts.
- we have no overhead expenses. Our office space, furniture, computers, telephone, internet access, credit card processing fees, Web site hosting, etc are all donated by Corporate Angels.
- we have no travel expenses. As we travel to visit the many hospitals and organizations that we support each officer or staff member pays their own expenses.
We’re proud to do our best to help bring an end to children’s cancer.
