Program Description:

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s grant application process is overseen by a voluntary group of renowned breast cancer research experts who comprise the BCRF Board of Scientific Advisors.  These Advisors invite proposals from deserving scientists who are pursuing new and creative projects related to breast cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment, and in need of critical seed funds.  This Board reviews the proposals and submits an approved roster to the BCRF Board of Directors for funding authorization.  The average size of each annual grant is $250,000. Grant recipients are required to provide both narrative and financial progress reports twice a year.

Program Long-Term Success:

Program Short-Term Success:

Program Success Monitored by:

Research progress and achievements are monitored by The Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s Scientific Advisors, experts who review funded projects on an ongoing basis and evaluate progress reports submitted semi-annually by each grantee.  The second installment of each grant is contingent upon the Advisors’ approval of narrative and financial progress reports.      BCRF’s fiscal efficiency is monitored by independent auditors as well as external agencies, such as Charity Navigator, CharityWatch, and the Philanthropic Advisory Service of the Better Business Bureau.

Program Success Examples:

Through its grant process, BCRF funds some of the world’s most promising breast cancer research.  Grant recipients engaged in a wide variety of research areas have made significant accomplishments that are laying the foundation for breast cancer prevention and cure. These accomplishments include the development of new drugs and treatment methods; the discovery of genetic markers for breast cancer; the detection of fundamental properties of breast cancer “stem” cells, or tumor-origination cells; the inception and completion of national and international breast cancer clinical trials; and the discovery of links between breast cancer risk and lifestyle factors, such as diet and exercise. Projects supported by BCRF grants have helped save lives and significantly improved the quality of care and survivorship for tens of thousands of breast cancer patients in the 20 years since the organization was founded in 1993.  The research itself has revealed that "cure" is a mosaic made up of as many approaches to diagnosing, treating, preventing and surviving as there are different types of breast cancer.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

In October 2013, BCRF awarded $45 million to more than 200 scientists across the United States and in Australia, Canada, Latin America, China, Africa, the Middle East, and throughout Europe, for innovative new directions in translational and clinical research on breast cancer prevention and treatment. With exceptionally low administrative costs, BCRF continues to be one of the most efficient organizations in the country.  The Foundation is consistently listed as an "A+" charity by CharityWatch, formerly known as The American Institute of Philanthropy, and is the only breast cancer organization to hold this ranking. In recognition of BCRF’s exceptional efficiency, Charity Navigator has recently renewed the Foundation’s 4-star rating, the twelfth such designation since 2002.
