Charity Navigator provides 501(c)(3) nonprofits with an Encompass Rating when we have available data. Please see the sections below for more information on why this organization is not currently rated.

This organization cannot be evaluated by our Encompass Rating methodology due to only having 2 years of data

To ensure year-to-year consistency the Encompass Rating System’s Finance & Accountability beacon analyzes the three-year average of some data provided through the IRS 990.
Charity Navigator currently only has 2 years of consecutive e-filed Forms 990 from the IRS for American Indian Cancer Foundation under the EIN: 27-0300026.
Before Charity Navigator can evaluate this organization, American Indian Cancer Foundation will need to e-file for additional fiscal years.

How will your organization know if you are making progress?

AICAF has incorporated evaluation into all aspects of the organizational development. Tracking progress on our ambitious mission and goals is currently limited to process measures that captures our reach and counts how many times we are doing each activity. We also have a number of satisfaction measures that are important to us. We have built in measures to track specific cancer related outcomes but due to our limited available data, we haven't been able to track this as of yet.


What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

Our progress to date has been about establishing ourselves as a true operating foundation. We have developed organizational policies and procedures on all efforts. We have secured funding to operationalize programs that are critical to meeting our mission and are working toward doing more in regards to improving access to quality treatment and survivor support. We have successfully engaged thousands of individuals at hundreds of tribal nations and mainstream organizations as partners in our work. We have a strong presence among American Indians and Alaska Natives across the United States.
