GRANTING PINK

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR IMMEDIATE NEEDS

MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Granting Pink is an individual financial grant program to help local breast cancer survivors with immediate and direct needs, and to recognize them for their courage and resilience on this difficult journey.  Many survivors/thrivers in our local community have limited income, are not able to work full-time, or have limited health insurance.  They greatly benefit from this meaningful support with 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.  In the past five years, we have awarded over $163,000 in total individual grants. 

GRANTING PINK APPLICATIONS
Encourage a local breast cancer survivor to fill out the straightforward application.  You can also nominate a survivor/thriver – your neighbor, friend or relative – by filling out the application on their behalf.  

Email info@thrivingpink.org for a copy of the Granting Pink application.
