There are many organizations involved in the fight against breast cancer. You can support your local breast cancer treatment organization or we recommend:
Breast Cancer Research Foundation
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF) was founded in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder as an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to funding innovative clinical and translational research. In 2010, BCRF awarded $33 million to 172 scientists across the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, and Australia. Currently, more than 90 cents of every dollar donated is directed to breast cancer research and awareness programs.
With exceptionally low administrative costs, BCRF continues to be one of the most efficient organizations in the country. Having received 4 stars from Charity Navigator for nine consecutive years, BCRF has outperformed 99% of more than 5,500 evaluated charities. Furthermore, the Foundation is once again listed as an “A+” charity by The American Institute of Philanthropy. No other breast cancer organization has consistently received such high ratings. For more information about BCRF, visit www.bcrfcure.org.
We are thrilled that BCRF continues to be a featured charity on the TETWP website, and that Tough Enough To Wear Pink has just signed on once again so generously as a sponsor of our Luncheon and Symposium event this coming October.
Local chapters of Susan G. Komen Foundation
For more than 20 years, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation has been a global leader in the fight against breast cancer through its support of innovative research and community-based outreach programs. Working through a network of U.S. and international affiliates and events like the Komen Race for the Cure, the Komen Foundation is fighting to eradicate breast cancer as a lifethreatening disease by funding research grants and supporting education, screening, and treatment projects in communities around the world.
