Mission Statement

Hope4YAWC is a non-profit (501(c)(3) charity that operates in the St. Louis Metro area that raises money for young adults, ages 18-40 that suffer from cancer. Outside of being the most un/under insured group of people in the United States, young adults suffering from cancer between these ages is normally very aggressive. Hope4YAWC was founded in 2012 and has helped hundreds of cancer patients and survivors. All proceeds from our golf tournament go directly to the "Giving Hope Fund" and more than 75% of the money raised will go to recipients in the St. Louis Metro area. The "Giving Hope Fund" allows young adults currently battling cancer, as well as those who have been in remission for up to 5 years, the opportunity to help pay for necessities they encounter in everyday life.

The "Giving Hope Fund" allows young adults currently battling cancer, as well as those who have been in remission for up to 5 years, the opportunity to help pay for necessities they encounter in everyday life. This includes obligations, such as rent and mortgage payments, cell phone and credit card bills, clothing and grocery gift cards. We would, of course, be remiss if we didn’t include the opportunity to make payments on all forms of medical bills, health care premiums and prescription co-pays. The "Giving Hope Fund" accepts applications twice a year, usually once in the fall and spring and is advertised throughout social media accounts.
