Thanks to the continuing support of Floridians purchasing the “End Breast Cancer” specialty license plate and the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation’s (FBCF) network of breast cancer supporters, survivors, and activists fighting to end the suffering caused by breast cancer, we have invested over $6 million in dedicated funding for breast cancer education and research programs in the state of Florida.
Each year, FBCF releases funding to provide Education Grants for nonprofit community-based organizations in the state of Florida. Ensuring Floridians receive the proper breast cancer education is one of the fundamental pillars of the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation's mission. We believe all women and men should have access to information that will empower them to be advocates for their own health by providing the tools necessary to assess their individual risks and abiltiy to recognize early signs and symptoms of breast cancer, regardless of income or where they live. Grants are awarded in support of innovative education programs throughout Florida that aim to reach populations who would not otherwise have access to this potentially lifesaving information.
FBCF, along with those who generously support us with their talent, time, and resources, is working to better the lives of those facing breast cancer in Florida. Proposals for Education Grants are carefully selected through a peer-review process by FBCF reviewers on the Education Committee.
Proposals are now being accepted for this year's Education Grant cycle. FBCF is currently offering education grants for Florida organizations up to $5,000 for projects in a single county and up to $10,000 for projects provided in multiple counties that focus on education in one on one or small group settings to reach as many people as possible.
