Joint Costs

Woman to Woman Breast Cancer Foundation (DISSOLVED)'s rating was adjusted for Joint Costs. If you are a donor who considers direct mail, telemarketing, and other Joint Cost solicitations to be true charitable programs, the below efficiency ratios, which were not adjusted for joint costs, may better reflect your goals.

Program % Cost to Raise $100
14% $82
Accounting rules allow charities to report some telemarketing, direct mail, and other solicitation costs as Program expenses. CharityWatch believes that most donors do not consider a charity's solicitation activities to be the Programs they are intending to support with their donations. We therefore adjust such expenses out of a charity's reported Program expense and add it to Fundraising expense prior to calculating its rating.

Unable to Provide Salaries

CharityWatch is unable to provide a range of Top Three Salaries for this charity for the above fiscal reporting year because we lack complete salary data for the organization. Except for officers, directors, and trustees, the IRS does not require breakouts of salaries totaling less than $100,000.

For example, XYZ charity would be required to provide a breakout in its tax form of compensation to its president of $55,000, but would not be required to provide a breakout of $99,000 in compensation to its top medical researcher if that person is not also an officer, director, or trustee of the organization.

This charity reports that compensation to its officers, directors, and trustees is under $100,000 per individual. Donors who would like to view limited salary data for this organization should refer to its tax form, which may be available on the charity's web site or from a number of third-party sources. See CharityWatch's Links page for information on obtaining copies of charity tax forms.


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.
Woman to Woman Breast Cancer Foundation has ceased operations, CharityWatch confirmed with the State of Florida, where the Foundation had been based.

CharityWatch had been unable to obtain an IRS Form 990 tax filing for Woman to Woman Breast Cancer Foundation past its 2012 fiscal year. The Foundation does not have an active 501(c)(3) tax exempt status with the IRS, according to the IRS's online searchable database (as of 11/21/2018).
According to the Dec. 31, 2012 audit of Woman to Woman Breast Cancer Foundation (W2W) (Note 1):

"At December 31, 2012, W2W had a net working capital deficit of approximately $208,000 and incurred a $284,000 deficiency of revenues over expenses for the year then ended. W2W has limited sources of unrestricted cash and funding available from existing credit facilities and financing arrangements."

"During 2013, W2W has implemented various plans to reduce operating costs by reducing staff and other cost reduction and savings measures, as well as efforts to increase revenue through corporate sponsorships and public donations. In addition, W2W is attempting to renegotiate with professional fundraisers for increased percentages and contracted with outside agencies to raise funds at minimal expense to W2W, which will result in increased revenues. It is believed that these plans will allow W2W to achieve and maintain profitability and improve financial stability."
According to the Dec. 31, 2012 audit of Woman to Woman Breast Cancer Foundation (W2W) (Note 5):
