$250,000 distributed in 2014 – over $4 million since inception
Last year, the Foundation’s main source of income continued to be generated by our generous sponsors and signature fundraising events. However, our increased income from Community Events and Fund-a-Need made a significant contribution to our bottom line.
After review and recommendation by the Foundation’s Grant Review Committee made up of local health leaders, community members and representatives from our Board of Directors, on April 1, 2014 To Celebrate Life awarded a total of $250,000 to 19 Bay Area nonprofits. These funds were generated during the year 2013.
To maintain its long-term sustainability the Foundation development activities include community events, our planned giving campaign (Celebration Circle), grants from foundations, memorial/legacy funds, giving circles and gifts from major donors. Plus the hours and hours of work done by our volunteers, allowing more funding to go to breast cancer services.
