Why give to To Celebrate Life?
To Celebrate Life Breast Cancer Foundation raises money then grants funds to carefully screened nonprofit organizations that provide services to Bay Area women and men living with breast cancer. Based on needs assessments developed by breast cancer advocacy groups, we evaluate the most urgent needs within the nine Bay Area counties that we serve. Applicants are required to provide financials and specific impact of grant money for our use in determining whether they qualify for a grant.
Our Grants Committee, consisting of community leaders, members of the medical community, board members and breast cancer survivors, reviews all applications. Grants are only awarded to programs that provide direct support services, with emphasis on underserved populations.
Continuous reporting and mid-year site visits by Foundation board members ensure that the funds are being used appropriately. With our careful selection process and meticulous follow up, you can be certain that your contributions are going where you intended – to help people with critical needs, throughout the communities we serve.
There are many ways to contribute
Grants support organizations providing direct and emergency services throughout the nine Bay Area counties.
All of our fundraising efforts over the course of the year are conducted with one goal in mind: awarding grants to nonprofit organizations that provide direct and emergency services to men and women facing breast cancer.
To Celebrate Life did so much for me by funding services I used extensively throughout my recovery. I would like to thank past and present To Celebrate Life volunteers who have made this all happen, the founders and the Board of Directors who have kept the vision that no one should face breast cancer alone.
