We work hard to maximize the impact of your gift. BCEF does not receive public funding. We rely on a community of individuals, corporations and private foundations to fund our work.
Your donation can mean many things to a person with breast cancer. Each BCEF client receives individualized support tailored to the most urgent unmet need. Whether it’s a telephone to stay connected with doctors, rent to prevent eviction or funds to help fill a prescription, BCEF makes sure that your donation has an immediate impact.
