To end HPV-related cancers.

Notes from the nonprofit

HPV causes almost all cervical cancers. Cervical cancer and the other 5 cancers that can be caused by HPV are preventable. We focus our education efforts and programs on raising awareness of these cancers and how to prevent them. Our supporters can realize the impact their donations are making with in 6-12 months of their donation because the funds are put to work immediately to help patients most in need. We are not raising awareness for a cure or funds for a cure. We don't need a cure when we know how to prevent the cancers caused by HPV. Check us out and if after doing so you want to help save some lives now and in the future, we'd love to have you join our crew!

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

According to the CDC about 44,000 human papillomavirus (HPV)-related cancers occur in the United States each year: about 25,000 among women, & about 19,000 among men. Cervical cancer is the most common HPV-associated cancer among women, & oropharyngeal cancers (cancers of the back of the throat, including the base of the tongue and tonsils) are the most common among men. HPV is linked to & can cause 6 types of cancer. It causes nearly all cervical cancers & many cancers of the vagina, vulva, penis, anus, rectum, & oropharynx. Education is critical & saves lives. HPV is the #1 sexually transmitted infection. Vaccines protect against the types of HPV that most often cause the 6 types of cancer as well as types of HPV that cause most genital warts. Cervical cancer also can be prevented or found early through regular Pap tests and HPV screenings & follow-up treatment. We are working to address the need to end HPV-related cancers and to save families.

Population(s) Served

This event encourages guests to raise their voices and have fun playing tennis, learning about cancer prevention and increasing awareness of HPV-related cancers. We offer the exercise in the afternoon followed by dinner, drinks, an auction, and a guest speaker who focuses on our mission.

Population(s) Served

This end of summer fundraiser is a perfect way for TCC's student interns and junior ambassadors to show off their hard work. It's a 5k route in a scenic park in Genoa Township in Westerville, OH. Families, dogs, strollers all are welcome to participate and join us in raising awareness of HPV-related cancers. ( the event name is meant to recognize the fact that there are multiple cancers caused by HPV and therefore, there are multiple colors used to raise awareness of the cancers; one for each of the 6 cancer types. Strength is an outcome of pulling everyone together to speak out about the 6 cancers that are preventable. Strength in numbers, strength in working together as a community to end cancer!

Population(s) Served

This is our annual signature awareness event held in January. Volunteers tie teal ribbons around posts & trees in recognition of Jan. being cervical health awareness month. It is a great opportunity to teach and show children the importance of being a volunteer and a philanthropist too. We encourage others to get involved and to wear teal in January, tie ribbons with us or in their own neighborhoods, school campuses, & towns. We ask for donations and for others to hold a fundraiser of their own with TCC as the benefiting charity.

Charting impact

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

Our goal is to end HPV-related cancers through education, outreach, patient support and research. Cancer screening, vaccination, education and living a healthy live style are all cancer prevention. Cervical Cancer is almost 100% caused by HPV. The the other cancers that can be caused by HPV are head and neck, anal, penile, vulvar and vaginal.

Education is Cancer Prevention and is key to our success.

Our strategies are to create and spread awareness through events and education, to support patients and research with the funds we raise, and to engage adolescents, young adults, adults, and guardians in our mission. The more we educate and support our communities the sooner we will end HPV-related cancers. These efforts in turn will ensure communities are healthier and staying well in regard to HPV and cancers caused by the number one transmitted infection.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

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.

Equity strategies

Last updated: 11/14/2023

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
