AVAC is a non-profit organization and is exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the US Internal Revenue Code. Our policy, advocacy and outreach work is made possible by the generous support of our members and donors. We do not accept funding from the pharmaceutical industry.
In 2015, our budget was $5.3 million, of which 87 percent was spent on programs, 11 percent on finance and administration and 2 percent on fundraising. This means that 87 cents of every dollar donated to AVAC went toward our policy, advocacy, communications, education and outreach work.
