Giving to Breast Cancer Connections
Your generous gift ensures that all our programs and services remain free of charge. We welcome all levels of donation, whether it’s a one-time gift, in-kind donation, or annual gift. Your contribution supports BCC’s work as a critical community resource to those facing breast cancer, including such services as healing workshops, support groups, practical help, and survivorship and renewal programs.
Donations also help maintain our ability to be a clearinghouse–connecting people to helpful resources out in the community as well as the extensive resources and up-to-date medical information in our library. BCC is grateful for the benevolence of all our donors.
Breast Cancer Connections is a 501(c)(3) organization.
