Charting impact

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

Screening: WCRC will increase awareness of cancers, risk and family history and improve screening rates for women at risk.

High Intensity Cancer Navigation: WCRC will improve access to culturally and linguistically appropriate medical care and coordinated service that support quality of life for women diagnosed with cancer.

Support (Psychosocial, Practical Assistance, Financial Assistance): WCRC will help women understand and cope with issues that impede their ability to undergo and remain in treatment.

Education: WCRC will improve community health through wellness and cancer education and expressive arts workshops.

WCRC is committed to address societal inequities that result in disparities in access, cancer burden, and cancer outcomes. To that end:
• All services are offered free of charge.
• Services are designed to meet the needs of diverse populations of women, including those with no or low income, the uninsured/underinsured, Spanish-speaking women, African American/Black women, and lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals;
• Services are provided by multicultural staff and volunteers, including those who speak Spanish
• Staff and volunteers receive training in cultural humility/competence.
• The Board is provided with a quarterly Data Dashboard that tracks key performance indicators for program, finance and development

WCRC has a strong and talented staff, a hard-working board of directors, a large and committed volunteer base, excellent relationships with partner organizations, and a solid reputation.

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.

Data
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • 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 help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • 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.
