Thanks to the generous contributions provided by our many supporters, friends and family, the MCMF is very pleased to announce that the Foundation had a great 2012.
In 2012, the MCMF increased its overall revenue* by almost 45%, and donations to the Foundation increased by almost 30% over 2011.
We increased the revenue* of our annual signature fundraiser, Bowl-A-Rama, in 2012 by almost 220%, and event attendance almost tripled that in 2011. The MCMF also obtained 7 corporate sponsors for the 2012 Bowl-A-Rama, allowing the Foundation to offset almost 75% of event costs.
During 2012, the MCMF created (i.e., defined, developed and marketed) the Matt’s Mixed Tape (MMT) Program as its initial quality of life (QOL) initiative. The Foundation successfully partnered with UCLA’s Daltrey/ Townshend Teen and Young Adult Cancer Program and accomplished the initial implementation of the MMT Program, which included the gifting of iPod Nanos pre-loaded with music generously donated by caring artists to UCLA Medical Center’s teen and young adult cancer patients.
The MCMF looks forward to a wonderful new year of continued growth in 2013, which will allow the Foundation to fund cures for the Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) and EBV-associated diseases, and to improve the quality of life for adolescents and young adults with cancer.
