Breast Cancer Research Foundation
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer. We provide critical funding for cancer research worldwide to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis and survivorship. Since our founding in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder, BCRF has raised more than half a billion dollars for lifesaving research. Through a unique and streamlined grants program, we seek out the brightest minds in science and medicine and give them the necessary resources to pursue their best ideas. As a result, researchers are able to make discoveries and design new approaches to address all aspects of breast cancer—and do so in record time.

It is the most common cancer in women worldwide, with more than 250,000 women and 2,000 men diagnosed in the u.s. This year alone. While mortality rates have decreased and outcomes have improved over the last two decades, approximately 40,000 people in the nation continue to die from the disease each year. With a new woman diagnosed every two minutes in the u.s., and every 19 seconds around the world, research is the only path to eradicating breast cancer. Subsequent to year-end, in October 2018, the foundation distributed grants approved at June 30, 2018 of $63 million, including $1,750,000 funded from the founders fund to nearly 300 researchers from top universities and medical institutions across six contnents, all working to dramatically improve diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of breast cancer for people everywhere.
