Funding for UK Charities Working in the Field of Breast Cancer

17 May 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

The Pink Ribbon Foundation’s mission is to help breast cancer charities help their clients recover from their cancer and then live longer, healthier, happier lives. Through its grant making the Pink Ribbon Foundation funds practical projects and initiatives, which aim to help registered charities to deliver good physical and mental health to individuals with and recovering from breast cancer.

Grants of up to £5,000 are available for revenue, capital or project costs. Projects should be delivered within 12 to 18 months.

The Foundation provides financial support to charities in the UK whose objects are:

  • To relieve the needs of people who are suffering from, or have been affected by, breast cancer by providing, or assisting in the provision of, information, care or emotional, practical and financial support.
  • To advance public education in the understanding of breast cancer, its early detection and treatment, in particular but not exclusively by commissioning, or conducting, research into the causes, detection and treatment of breast cancer and by disseminating the results of such research.

The Foundation will consider applications from general cancer charities if any grant made will be used to benefit those suffering from, or affected by, 50% of patients that suffer from Breast Cancer or for research into, or the dissemination of information about, breast cancer.

The Foundation is keen to support initiatives which promote a positive view of living with breast cancer.

The deadline for applications is 28 May 2021.
