The Pink Ribbon Foundation is a grant making trust with a mission to fund projects and provide financial support to UK charities which relieve the needs of people who are suffering from, have been affected by breast cancer, or who work to advance the understanding of breast cancer and its early detection and treatment.
There are a large number of such charities in the UK, each as deserving as the next. Many of the charities supported are the smaller ones, which operate on a shoestring.
The Pink Ribbon Foundation has very little infrastructure.
It relies on the hard work given by Trustees, interested parties and its Patrons. This is done in order to maximise the amount, which goes to the charities that benefit from the funds raised.
Who can apply for a grant?
Any charity working in the field of breast cancer can apply for a grant.
If you have not registered and are considering applying for a grant, please send us an email at any time of the year and we will add you to our register. To be considered for a grant in 2017, please submit your grant application to the Foundation by Friday 26 May 2017. Grants are awarded annually in late July and those organisations on our register will receive an email in March to remind them to submit their application.
Please note the following:
- All applicants must be prepared to inform the Foundation of their projects progress at least twice in the year of the grant, unless it is to be used for a specific event.
- A set of your most current accounts must accompany any grant application.
- All organisations awarded a grant must send a letter of grant award recognition to the Foundation as soon as they are in receipt of the grant.
