Overview

The vast majority of our support comes from individuals like you, and never from corporations that profit from or contribute to breast cancer. This means that you can always trust us to put your health first, expose the truth about the breast cancer industry, and give you tools you can use to make a difference.

And this also means that we need your help to continue this vital and ambitious work. There are so many ways to support Breast Cancer Action (BCAction) so let us help you find the way that’s best for you.

Make a Donation

The BBRRF honors Barbara’s fifteen years of leadership as BCAction’s first full-time Executive Director, as well as her commitment to women’s health and ending the breast cancer epidemic. Under Barbara’s leadership, BCAction became well-known for responding rapidly, accurately, truthfully, and fearlessly to issues about breast cancer. New and crucial issues always arise in the breast cancer movement and resources are needed in order to respond to them, educate the public, and motivate people to take action. Therefore, the dollars raised from Barbara’s Fund will support program activities that address crucial emerging issues in breast cancer.

The Barbara Brenner Rapid Response Fund is a temporarily restricted fund whereby only a certain percentage of the fund may be spent in a fiscal year, thereby ensuring the fund is sustained over time.
