Pandemic Response

Due to the unprecedented nature of the pandemic, we give charities such as this one the opportunity to share the story of COVID's impact on them. Charities may submit their own pandemic responses through their nonprofit portal.


Team Tony Cancer Foundation reported being impacted by COVID-19 in the following ways:
  • Program Delivery

  • Fundraising Capacity


How COVID-19 impacted the organization's operations financially:

We were unable to hold one of our traditional annual fundraisers. We did apply and receive the PPP loan and were able to remain fully staffed.


How COVID-19 impacted the organization's delivery of programs:

Because the majority of our constituents served are immunocompromised, all of our programming had to transition to a virtual format. This has been difficult and has led to a drop off in many of those participating in our programs and services.


How this organization adapted to changing conditions caused by COVID-19:

We transitioned one of our in person fundraisers to a virtual format for 2020 and managed to host a very successful event.


Innovations the organization intends to continue permanently after the pandemic:

For some of the virtual programming offered to our constituents, we will continue to offer a virtual format, even when we return to in person programming.

Mission

The nonprofit organization presents evidence of strategic thinking through articulating the organization’s mission


TEAM TONY CANCER FOUNDATION PROVIDES free peer to peer support and resources to cancer fighters, caregivers and survivors so no one on Florida's Suncoast faces cancer alone.


Source: Nonprofit submitted responses

Vision

The nonprofit organization presents evidence of strategic thinking through articulating the organization’s vision.


Three words that change your life in an instant: "You have cancer." The shock and dislocation are indescribable. Your emotions are a rollercoaster colliding into fear, sadness and denial. This is normal. Now imagine that someone reaches out to you and says, "I've been there; I can relate to what you're going through, and I'm here for you." There is nothing standard about a cancer experience. The mission of Team Tony Cancer Foundation is one that is specific and personal to anyone impacted by a cancer diagnosis. Cancer can be less frightening when standing next to someone who has been there and beat it.


Source: Nonprofit submitted responses

Strategic Goals

The nonprofit organization presents evidence of strategic thinking and goal setting through sharing their most important strategic goals.


Goal One: Ensure adequate financial resources so that Team Tony can effectively carry out its mission and have a sustainable and diverse long-term funding source.

Goal Type: Grow, expand, scale or increase access to the existing programs and services.


Goal Two: Sufficiently market Team Tony’s programs to enhance the public image, increase community awareness of our programs and services, and to build collaborative partnerships.

Goal Type: This goal reflects our commitment to further our advocacy work for our organization and or cause area.


Goal Three: Establish a yearly plan to review services and institute procedures to monitor and strengthen Team Tony’s programs and services.

Goal Type: Focus on core programs to achieve mission and scale back on programs not seen as core.

Leadership Development

The nonprofit provides evidence of investment in leadership development


Describe an investment in leadership

Our staff looks for opportunities to attend webinars and networking events related to nonprofit leadership, board development, and fundraising to learn best practices and ideas for improving and growing our organization. We also look for ways to share ideas with other nonprofit organizations and leadership whether it be via collaboration or ‘think-tank’-type opportunities.

Source: Nonprofit submitted responses

Mobilizing for Mission

The nonprofit provides evidence of leadership through focusing externally and mobilizing resources for the mission.


This organization mobilizes for mission in the following ways:
  • Strategic Partnerships

  • Raising Awareness

What are this organization’s external mobilizaton efforts?

Due to the pandemic, many of the support groups offered to cancer patients and their caregivers in our community had to be postponed. Team Tony recognizes the value these groups provide to our community and offered our Center, and our Zoom technology, in an effort to allow these groups to continue. One local support group, the Men-2-Men Prostate Support Group, has been meeting at our Center monthly since March of 2020. They have a few members who join in person at the Center, and use our Zoom technology to host the rest of the members for the support group. In addition, we have also allowed the Cancer Resource Network to use our Zoom technology to continue to host their quarterly meetings.

Source: Nonprofit submitted responses

Story of Adaptability

The nonprofit has an opportunity to tell the story of how the organization adapted to tremendous external changes in the last year.


During the last year, we have had to make many adjustments to our programs and services, including providing opportunities for virtual programs. We have moved our series of Lifestyle Wellness Seminars that were being held monthly at our Cancer Connection Center, to every other month session via Zoom. We have also transitioned our Team Tony Brown Bag Book Club to a virtual book club via Zoom. And, where our support seekers and Teammates used to meet in person, now they are interacting via phone, FaceTime and Zoom. While we hope to return to in-person programming when it is safe for our community to do so, we also plan to continue to offer our Lifestyle Wellness Seminars and Book Club via a virtual platform for those who feel safer attending that way.
