Courage Club

With a cancer diagnosis, you become a member of the club no one wants to join. Welcome to the Courage Club! The Courage Club by The Boon Project is a place for young adult cancer fighters and survivors in the Lowcountry (and beyond) to connect with others who understand the physical, mental, and emotional battle that is a cancer diagnosis as a young adult. Courage Club features a free private online support group, free monthly gatherings and group community service projects. Some events are private for Courage Club members only, while others include the all important caregivers and family members.
A subgroup of Courage Club, the Metathriver Group, meets at least once a quarter and provides support to young adults facing a terminal, chronic, or stage IV cancer diagnosis. This group also has a private online support community.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

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.
