Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month - an annual campaign that aims to educate the public on the importance of early screening, testing and treatment for breast cancer. Activities include raising research funds to help identify the cause, uncover potential prevention strategies, and improve diagnosis, in addition to offering support to people impacted by the disease.   

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month October 1-31, 2020, America's Charities is celebrating the following members who are making a difference in the fight to end breast cancer.

One of the most cost-efficient ways you can support these nonprofits is to donate to them via payroll deduction through your employer's workplace giving program (Don't have a program? Click here to have your employer contact our team.)

Breast Cancer Coalition - Since its inception in 1991, The National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC) has a mission to end breast cancer through the power of grassroots action and advocacy. NBCC links hundreds of organizations and tens of thousands of individuals into a dynamic, diverse coalition that gives breast cancer a meaningful voice in Washington, DC, and state capitals, in laboratories and health care institutions, and local communities everywhere. NBCC’s member organizations range from small support groups to statewide and regional nonprofits to organizations with a national reach. They come together under NBCC’s umbrella for public policy, education and training, and new models of science.
