Deets: Breast Cancer Research Foundation's (BCRF) annual fundraiser.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF), founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, is committed to being the end of breast cancer by advancing the world's most promising research. Over the last twenty years, BCRF-funded investigators have been deeply involved in every major breakthrough in breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.
This year, BCRF invested $57 million to support the work of more than 265 scientists at leading medical and academic institutions across 14 countries, making BCRF the largest private funder of breast cancer research worldwide.
By spending 91 cents of every dollar on research and public awareness programs, BCRF remains one of the nation's most fiscally responsible nonprofits. BCRF is the only breast cancer organization with an "A+" from CharityWatch, and has been awarded Charity Navigator’s highest rating of four stars 14 times since 2002.
