The report of experts was gathered by Philanthropedia (at GuideStar), a nonprofit organization working to help donors make smarter donations by connecting them with some of the highest impact nonprofits in a cause. They are different from other online rating sites or donation sites because they use experts to identify high-impact nonprofits.
Here is a sample of what the experts said about us:
“In the 6 years since Fight Colorectal Cancer was founded, they have had an impact in areas where nothing had been done before.”
“They are able to impact federal funding for colorectal cancer and have succeeded in seeing legislation introduced and funding increased.”
“This organization is far better than most at blending compassionate assistance to individual patients and family members with a sophisticated technical understanding of the disease, treatment options, and technically complex policy issues.”
“Fight Colorectal Cancer was responsible for securing millions of dollars for new research through their work on Capitol Hill. They were instrumental in getting colorectal cancer screenings included in health care reform. Currently they are leading the way in keeping patients informed about cancer drug shortages. They also directly fund research. In the six years of their existence, they have provided four research grants totaling $150,000.”
When it came to areas where the organization could improve, the experts agreed:
“The group has limited staff capacity. It would benefit from a stronger bullpen.”
“They have ambitious goals which need additional capacity to be met.”
“It could improve capacity to do more work.”
“I could not agree more with the experts – both in their comments on our strengths and on areas where we could improve,” states Carlea Bauman, president of Fight Colorectal Cancer. “We are a small but mighty organization – but just imagine what we could do with more funding and more staff.”
“I would like to thank Philantropedia, Guide Star and all the experts who recommended our work,” continued Bauman. “It is extremely gratifying to Fight CRC’s board, staff and volunteers to have our efforts recognized by our peers.”
