Evaluation Conclusions


Young Texans Against Cancer does not meet the following Standard for Charity Accountability.

Standard 13: Accuracy of Expenses in Financial Statements - Accurately report the charity's expenses, including any joint cost allocations, in its financial statements. For example, audited or unaudited statements which inaccurately claim zero fund raising expenses or otherwise understate the amount a charity spends on fund raising, and/or overstate the amount it spends on programs will not meet this standard.

Young Texans Against Cancer does not meet this Standard because:

  • The organization's IRS Form 990, for fiscal year ending December 31, 2013, did not include fundraising expenses.
In addition, the Houston BBB requested but did not receive complete information on the organization’s finances and is unable to verify the organization's compliance with the following Standard for Charity Accountability: 9.
Young Texans Against Cancer meets the remaining 18 Standards for Charity Accountability.
