Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

It's The Journey strives to strengthen Georgia's breast cancer community by raising money for local organizations that focus on breast cancer education, early detection, genetic testing and counseling, Lymphedema treatment and wellness programs for those fighting breast cancer.

By hosting the annual Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer, in addition to other strategic partnerships with corporate sponsors, It's The Journey is able to annually secure an ever-growing source of income to support the grants that we award each year. This year, the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer raised over $1 million in walker and crew donations.

It's The Journey has demonstrated throughout its 13 year history that it is experienced in raising the kind of significant funding it takes to have a real and positive impact in the fight against breast cancer in Georgia. Our small staff is bolstered by our 250 volunteer crew members who work together throughout the year to execute the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer – our flagship fundraiser.

In over a decade, we have developed a strong and vibrant network within the breast cancer community in Georgia, and have created a valued mechanism by which Georgians can directly and significantly support the fight against breast cancer in their communities.

From 2003-2015, we funded breast cancer education, screening, early detection, genetic testing and counseling, lymphedema treatment, and supportive services, but were not yet able to fund research. Now, for the first time, we are excited to share that It's The Journey will be funding a breast cancer research grant to be awarded in 2016 to a research institution right here in Georgia.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
