The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®, founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, is an independent not-for-profit organization committed to funding scientific research to achieve prevention
and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime. In October 2012, BCRF is awarding $40 million to 197 scientists across the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Australia, and China. With 91 cents of every dollar spent by BCRF directed towards breast cancer research and awareness programs, BCRF remains one of the most fiscally responsible charities in the country. The Foundation holds a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, which is its tenth such designation since 2002. Additionally, BCRF is the only cancer organization designated as “A+” by CharityWatch.
