Our Mission is to help Ohio breast cancer patients with the day-to-day challenges of living while being treated for breast cancer.
Our monies help nonprofits in your community provide emergency living expenses and other services to their clients.
100% of funds stay in Ohio.
According to the Center for Disease Control, more than 104,000 Ohio residents are diagnosed with breast cancer each year, and more than 23,000 die from this vicious disease annually.
You can help these women and men by supporting the Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio’s EMPOWER THE PINK campaign.
The Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio is
EMPOWER THE PINK means that all of us are empowered to do something about breast cancer, whether it is driving a car with a Breast Cancer Awareness license plate, making a donation, or simply signing a petition showing your love and concern for breast cancer patients and survivors.
Supporting EMPOWER THE PINK requires no hard work! All you do is put a sign on your sales counter or desk asking for signatures and identify how much you will donate per signature - $10, $100, $1,000 … you name the amount! Once a sign has been filled, you can post it on your wall and put up another sign.
You can also incorporate your support into your social media! Post on Facebook, or tweet via Twitter, that for every like, share or retweet, you will donate $1, $10, or $100 … up to the limit you select.
Feel free to publicize your support of breast cancer patients and survivors in all of your media advertising so that the community is aware of your concern (we will provide you with sample verbiage upon request).
At the end of the month, send us the money you agreed to donate. We will list you as a “PROUD SUPPORTER OF EMPOWER THE PINK” on our website.
It’s very easy to participate. Simply complete the interest form and let us know how many locations will be participating. We will send you all the materials you need.
