The 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

We are thrilled that BCRF continues to be a featured charity on the Wrangler Tough Enough to Wear Pink 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.
