Impact

The Pink Agenda has raised more than $3.5 million to fund breast cancer research and care.

Raising money so that we can improve the lives of those suffering from breast cancer while simultaneously working to improve their odds is a big undertaking. To ensure that we fund the projects and programs that will make a real difference, The Pink Agenda works with some of the world’s foremost authorities on breast cancer to guide our grantmaking. TPA makes two types of grants – research grants and direct care grants.

Research Grants

We rely on the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s (BCRF) esteemed Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) to guide our research-related grantmaking. 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, BCRF’s SAB 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.

Direct Care Grants

The Pink Agenda has also worked with the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Young and Strong Program for Young Women with Breast Cancer to identify projects that have had a direct and positive impact on women’s cancer care. Since it was founded in 2005, Young and Strong has guided more than 4,500 young women on their journeys through and beyond cancer, addressing their needs with comprehensive care and support together with a range of programs tailored specifically for them. In doing so, it has become a model for women’s cancer care across the country.
