We here at the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation (FBCF) know times are tough, and your needs are many. Last year, we added an additional $100,000 dollars to our regular funding cycle to offer MORE funding to nonprofits for living expenses for breast cancer patients in active treatment, Tomosynthesis (3D) Diagnostic Mammograms and/or screening MRIs to those in need, and most recently added, medical items for breast cancer patients and survivors.

Because the need continues to be great, we have kept that increase and are proud to now offer $400,000 annually in Direct Services funding to better serve breast cancer patients and survivors, and ensure those who need mammograms continue to have access. The Florida Breast Cancer Foundation, along with those who generously support us with their talent, time, and resources, is working harder than ever to improve the lives of those facing breast cancer in Florida and we continue to fight for YOU.

 


This RFA invites applications from any Florida-based 501 (c)(3) organization providing direct service support to breast cancer patients (see eligibility requirements for active treatment and survivorship).
