The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® was founded in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder as an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to funding innovative clinical and genetic research. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised more than $380 million to support clinical and genetic research at top universities and academic medical centers worldwide conducting the most advanced and promising breast cancer research that will lead to prevention and a cure in our lifetime.
Currently, 91 cents of every dollar spent by BCRF is directed towards breast cancer research and awareness programs. In recognition of our exceptional efficiency, Charity Navigator has recently renewed our 4-star rating, our tenth such designation since 2002, and BCRF is additionally honored to be the only cancer organization to receive an “A+” rating from CharityWatch.
