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

bcrf_smallSince founded, in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder, BCRF has raised more than a billion dollars for lifesaving research. Through a unique and streamlined grants program, we seek out the brightest minds in science and medicine and give them the necessary resources to pursue their best ideas. As a result, researchers are able to make discoveries and design new approaches to address all aspects of breast cancer—and do so in record time.

In 2023-2024, BCRF will award $60.2 million in annual grants to more than 250 scientists from top universities and medical institutions around the globe. In addition, BCRF has established the Evelyn H. Lauder Founder’s Fund, a multi-year international program dedicated to metastasis that is the first large-scale global effort to unravel the biology of metastasis, with more than $30 million earmarked to date. It is the largest privately funded project exclusively focused on metastasis in the world. But we still have more to do.

BCRF is committed to the highest degree of fundraising efficiency. Currently, 91 cents of every dollar we spend is directed towards breast cancer research and awareness programs. Each year, the maximum amount of dollars is directed to research rather than a future endowment. BCRF is recognized as one of the most financially efficient nonprofits in the country. We have an “A” rating from CharityWatch and are in the top 0.5% of Guidestar’s database, which includes more than 1.8 million IRS recognized organizations.

Local chapters of Susan G. Komen Foundation

Since 1982, Komen has funded more than $3.6 Billion in groundbreaking research, medical care, community and provider education, and psychosocial support, serving millions in over 60 countries worldwide. The 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 life-threatening disease by funding research grants and supporting education, screening and treatment projects in communities around the word.
