The Breast Cancer Research Fund's purpose is just that - Research and Awareness. It does not purport to help individual cancer patients but rather, sponsors a great deal of research so that cancer can be prevented and ultimately eradicated, and also aims to raise awareness.
.
When deciding
on a cancer non-profit to donate to, our group chose BCRF since 91% of the money they take in supports research and awareness. After contacting them, we received pink ribbon pins and pink silicone bracelets free-of-charge in order to raise awareness and help raise more money for the fundraiser.

We have not been hounded by any of their representatives subsequently to donate.

Another consideration - we are a Catholic group and did not want to donate to a cancer non-profit that supports abortion as does Susan B. Komen. While SBK does provide patient support and is very well known for their work and their fundraisers, we searched for a cancer non-profit that did not support abortion and that would not spend a great deal of their donations on advertising and other non-cancer support aspects of their organization.

Review from Guidestar

Since shortly after I received a diagnosis of breast cancer, my husband began receiving calls from "Breast Cancer Relief Foundation" for donations. The first year my husband did donate to this "charity" and then began receiving constant calls from other "charities" that are part of this groups "Network" Children's Cancer Dream Foundation among others. These calls became so frequent that I finally asked them to stop calling !
Once I began turning down their requests for donations, they began calling with their number "masked" or using fake numbers ( those which you cannot connect with if you try calling back) and insisting on speaking to "Mr.Dennis" (my husbands first name) and stating they're calling from "Public Appeal" inferring that they're with a public opinion poll and not giving the true nature of the call until I pressed the issue ! After receiving 4 calls this week alone, and returning a "Pledge" slip from the "Childrens Cancer Dream Network" for a donation, I've again instructed them, once again to take us OFF their "Tap a Sap" (my term) list and STOP CALLING .... after finding out from Guide Star that only 1 or 2 cents of each donated dollar actually goes to "assist" cancer patients, we will NEVER donate to them or their affiliates again.... Thanks for the info

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

take away their "Tax Exempt" status and make sure that any current assets in their coffers actually be donated to the Charities they pretend to support !

I usually give to the Breast Cancer Research Center. In the past couple of months I have been receiving 4 or 5 calls a week from one of your representatives asking for donations. I have advised them NOT to call me and please take my name off of their mailing list. I still get a call at least once a day! PLEASE forward this message to the proper person to take care of this matter. Thank You sincerely,
