It takes a community of donors to keep our doors open and services offered at no charge.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Breast Cancer Resource Center depends on the generosity of its supporters to ensure that anyone affected by breast cancer can have the support and resources they need to learn to cope, and find a path to live life to the fullest. We thank you for your generous gifts of time, money, and talents. Because of your support, BCRC exists to do the work we are privileged and honored to do for our community.

One hundred percent of our income comes solely from generous contributions from individual donors, corporate sponsorships, local businesses, and grant donations from private foundations. We receive no governmental funding.

Our annual fundraising events are a fun way to get involved, meet other BCRC supporters and enjoy a great charity event. Consider sponsorship for The Pink Lounge Gala, or the annual THRIVE Fashion Show featuring BCRC clients as the models.

Here are some ways you can give to BCRC:

  • GIVING Corporate Giving Check with your employer to see if your company supports its employees in their personal philanthropic giving by providing a matching gift. This is a great way for businesses and individuals to help support client programs. The impact of your gift may be increased, possibly doubled, or even tripled.
  • GIVING Stocks, Securities, and Mutual Funds We warmly accept donations of stocks, securities, and/or mutual funds. This is a popular way to donate. Contact us or your financial advisor to arrange for delivery or electronic transfer authorization.
  • GIVING IRA Rollover Gift If you are 70.5 years or older, you can make a Qualified Distribution from your IRA that is tax free. Through direct transfer from your IRA to BCRC you can gift up to $100,000 per year from IRA, it can be used to satisfy your required minimum distribution, and it may be excluded from gross income for tax purposes.
  • GIVING Leave a Legacy There are many easy and flexible ways that you can leave a legacy gift to BCRC that will have an significant impact in the lives of women and men with breast cancer well into the future. Some of these charitable mechanisms include: make a bequest; designate BCRC as the beneficiary of your assets by will, trust, or beneficiary designation; charitable gift annuities and charitable trusts; transfer cash or appreciated property to BCRC.
  • GIVING Gift of Real Estate An outright gift of all or a portion of property to BCRC. Benefits include: avoidance of capital gains on sale, eliminate inconvenience of marketing and selling property yourself, and charitable income tax deduction.

Important note: Legacy gifts like some of those mentioned above are called “planned giving” because they require careful financial planning for yourself and your family on how you wish to distribute your assets after you are gone. Please consult with your attorney, tax accountant, or financial advisor before deciding on the best gift strategy for your individual and family circumstances.
