Pink Aid

Compassion until there's a cure.

MISSION

Pink Aid’s mission is to help underserved local women survive breast cancer treatment with support and dignity, to provide screening to women in financial need, and to empower breast cancer survivors to heal by helping and inspiring others.

Our grants support programs that provide services including free breast cancer screening and help covering non-medical expenses such as food cards, household bills, wigs, recovery garments and transportation for patients undergoing treatment.

Some of the programs we support are established hospital foundations and national non-profits, while others are smaller grass roots organizations. Large or small, they share our goal to help local women survive breast cancer with compassion.

Pink Aid grants are awarded to recipients whose goals best advance Pink Aid’s Mission.

 

OVERVIEW

When a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, she needs a lot more than medical help. She needs rides to and from treatments, babysitting, grocery delivery, medical navigation, wigs, recovery garments and so much more.

With a staggeringly high rate of occurrence, there are countless women that cannot afford to go through treatment with the proper care and dignity. Many also need free mammograms to help with early detection.

There are several organizations that compassionately assist women in need that are diagnosed with breast cancer… but of course, they are in great need of funding.

While it is critical that we all continue to contribute to breast cancer research initiatives, Pink Aid is a grant-based organization that funds the efforts of organizations that provide this type of compassionate care… currently locally and ultimately beyond.

Pink Aid offers a welcome opportunity to join together to make a real difference in the lives of many women and their families, within and around our communities.

Founded in 2010, Pink Aid was granted 501C3 status in 2015. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
