How We Help

As the largest growing demographic in the metroplex, we utilize our network and connections to raise funds through various efforts, including our signature events, membership activities, generous donors, and corporate sponsors. Over the last 13 years, we have raised over $2.5M for the fight against cancer in Dallas.

In 2020, Our organization joined forces with one of the largest cancer-fighting organizations in the nation with more than 100 years of leadership and research in the field, the American Cancer Society. Together, we will work to help with their mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer and as Dallas’ young professional’s arm – while having the most fun possible!

Our organization was established in 2001 as Young Texans Against Cancer by individuals in the Houston. The founding members had something in common: Cancer. Some had personally battled cancer while others witnessed loved ones struggling with the illness.
Inspired by their similarities and struggles, the founding members created YTAC to increase cancer awareness among their generation of young professionals and the community. Our organization has raised over $2.5 million in support of the fight against cancer.

The Dallas chapter was established in 2007 and became an independent organization in 2019. Having served as a young professional nonprofit for over a decade, we partnered with the American Cancer Society to take our fight against cancer to the next level!
