The FBCF is currently offering education grants for Florida organizations: Up to $5,000.00 for projects in a single county and up to $10,000.00 for projects provided in multiple counties that focus on education in one-on-one, small group settings, or virtual technology to reach as many people as possible. Grants are available for projects that take place over a minimum of a 12-month period.

The FBCF requires each grantee to conduct a minimum of two educational sessions during the grant period AND we encourage each grantee to provide or connect with a partner(s) organization(s) to deliver a variety of support resources as defined below.

2022 Priority Areas: (Must choose at least one priority area):

1. Educate women and men in the areas where they need to become proactive advocates for their own breast health through one on one, small group or virtual technology Educational Workshops (i.e. pre-diagnosis, urgency after diagnosis, types of chemo, types of surgery, etc.)

2. Provide education to breast cancer survivors, their families, and advocates on life after or with cancer, including the “transition phase” from active treatment to survivorship.

3. Provide education on breast health to young women and men with a focus on middle school, high school, and college ages. 

4. Create and provide a method of education on late stage breast cancer diagnosis that will help reduce the percentage of these diagnoses in the areas that exceed the state of Florida average.
