Raising money so that we can improve the lives of those suffering from the breast cancer while simultaneously working to improve their odds is a big undertaking.  But it’s only half the battle.

Maintaining the level of operational efficiency necessary to maximize the impact of your contributions is critical.  So, too, is ensuring that we’re funding the projects and programs that will make a real difference.

To that end, we work with some of the world’s foremost authorities on breast cancer to guide our grant making. The Pink Agenda makes two types of grants - research grants and direct care grants. 


We rely on the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s (BCRF) esteemed board of scientific advisors to guide our research-related grant making.  Based on the belief that some of the most important advances in understanding the disease will come when we allow brilliant minds to pursue some of their most creative theories, the board invites select scientists from leading universities and academic medical centers around the world to submit proposals outlining creative new directions in clinical and/or translational research that are in need of seed funding. The Pink Agenda then fully funds one of these projects with a named grant and shares semiannual updates on the research with its supporters.

The Pink Agenda also works with the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Program for Young Women with Breast Cancer to identify a project that will have a direct and positive impact on women’s cancer care.  Focused on the unique needs of young women who have been diagnosed with the disease, Dana-Farber’s Program for Young Women with Breast Cancer was the first program of its kind in New England and remains one of the only such programs in the United States.  Since it was founded in 2005, it has shepherded more than 1,000 young women on their journey through and beyond cancer, addressing their needs with comprehensive care and support together with a range of programs tailored specifically for them.  In so doing, it has become a model for women’s cancer care across the country.
