In continuing with the tradition we began last year, Commtouch has made a donation to a charitable organization in the spirit of the holidays. With the help of Charity Navigator, we chose four 4-star organizations and asked our partners and friends to help choose the organization (or organizations) to which we would make our contribution. After tallying the votes, this year’s donation is going to The V Foundation for cancer research.
Since 1993, the V Foundation has raised more than $80 million and awarded cancer research grants in 38 states and the District of Columbia. Funds raised by The V Foundation have helped researchers develop their laboratories and take their science from the labs to the clinics.
According to their Web site, The V Foundation:
- Awards 100% of all direct donations and net proceeds of events directly to cancer research and related programs
- Received a 7th consecutive top 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, placing them in the top 2% of all charities evaluated
- Has raised more than $90 million to fund cancer research
- Has awarded grants to 92 institutions in 38 US states & DC
Commtouch wishes all of our partners and friends, and everyone around the world, a happy and healthy new year.
