GRANTING PINK

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR IMMEDIATE NEEDS

GRANTING PINK APPLICATIONS
Granting Pink is an individual financial grant program to help local women and their families with immediate and direct needs.  Many survivors in our local community have limited income, are not able to work full-time, or have limited health insurance.  They greatly benefit from financial assistance for medical appointments, costs for surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, transportation, rent, groceries, and quality of life care.

Thank you for making it possible to provide direct support with these crucial funds.  It is our goal to provide 40+ local breast cancer survivors with individual grants every year, up to $1,500 each. 

Encourage a woman diagnosed with breast cancer to fill out the straightforward application.  You can also nominate a survivor – your neighbor, friend or relative – by filling out the application on their behalf.

The Granting Pink Application will be available on July 1st on our website under “Programs”, and is due by August 10th.
