How Your Donation Is Spent
Your donation to the Breast Cancer Fund is a responsible investment for a safe and healthy future. Our work to identify and eliminate the environmental causes of breast cancer is sustained by generous contributions from individual donors, foundations and responsible businesses.
The Breast Cancer Fund, our staff and board are committed to service of our mission, and strive to be effective leaders in the environmental health movement. That means putting your dollars to use on real change: Seventy-eight percent of the organization's income goes directly to our programmatic work, including publication of groundbreaking scientific reports, advocacy for state and federal legislative solutions and public education about environmental risks and breast cancer.
