Q: How does the UCAN Foundation utilize donations?
A: Every dollar donated goes directly towards furthering our mission in advocating for the mental health and rights of cast members. While there will be expenses associated with the administration of running and operating UCAN, the majority of donations will be allocated to the outreach, advocacy and professional support for reality TV cast members.
Q: Am I paying for someone's therapy?
A: No! Your donations are not going to directly pay for therapy sessions for cast members. We believe the production and distribution companies who create the need should be responsible for providing the care, not you. Your donation goes towards furthering this cause and building our network of mental health providers who's expertise is uniquely suited to help reality TV cast members.
