CharityWatch Analysts perform an in-depth analysis of charities' audited financial statements and IRS tax filings, and often review other documents such as state filings, annual reports, and fundraising contracts during their evaluations. Below are select notes that CharityWatch believes may be of interest to donors.

According to the Breast Cancer Prevention Partners (BCPP) audit of December 31, 2022 (Note L re: In-kind donations), BCPP received in-kind contributed goods consisting of "hiking gear, fundraising events goods, incentive prizes, food and beverage and services" in 2022 on which it placed a value of $167,572.

[Note: CharityWatch generally excludes the value of in-kind (non-cash) donations of goods and services from its calculations of Program % and Cost to Raise $100. More information on how grades are calculated and the treatment of in-kind donations can be found on the Our Process page.]
