Financials & Governance

CanCare is committed to transparently communicating our progress and financial position with our donors, volunteers and clients.  We encourage people to look at how effectively we deliver on our mission, in addition to how efficiently we operate.

Annual Report

Our Annual Report highlights our achievements from the past year as we work to support cancer patients and their caregivers.

IRS Form 990

As a nonprofit organization that is exempt from federal taxation, we ensure donors’ money is spent as efficiently and effectively as possible.  The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form 990 is an annual federal informational return that most tax-exempt charitable corporations are required to file. The information in the Form 990 is provided in accordance with IRS regulations.
CanCare currently has two interrelated organizations that file Form 990s:

  • CanCare, Inc. – Main organization headquartered in Houston, TX
  • CanCare Foundation – Foundation whose mission is supporting CanCare, Inc. financially

Audited Financials

CanCare prepares our financials in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and has independent accountants audit them each year.  Copies of our audited financial records are available for review at our offices.

CanCare Board of Directors

CanCare, Inc. is governed by a Board of Directors which is made up of unpaid volunteers from the medical and lay communities.  Directors must abide by a written Conflict of Interest Policy and are elected for a three-year term.

The CanCare Foundation has a separate Board of Directors who are elected for a three-year term.
