My experience with NBCF has been very positive. They have been very easy to work with and have made the whole experience enjoyable. I really hope to work with them again in the future on another project.
There are two great things about NBCF. First, they generously provide funds for breast cancer related services, especially for low-income women, and the process to request and report on funding is simple and efficient. Second, the program officers there (most recently Michael Zenteno, but all have been great) are really responsive and caring. In fact, the entire organization is responsive. They recently contacted current grantees to ask us what else, besides funding for screenings, we really needed. When we responded, our answers didn't go into some "black box" somewhere...they actually got back in touch with us again to ask more questions about our needs. In my 12 years as a grants professional, I have never had a program officer contact me to ask about our needs. In my experience, NBCF is the best example of a Great Non-Profit that I can think of.
The NBCF is one of the most welcoming offices I have been into! I have had a chance to meet with most of the staff as well as sit in on a luncheon. I was amazed at the professionalism, passion for the cause, and overall friendliness. Amazing non-profit with fabulous staff!
I've been involved with NBCF for the past 2 years, and I've gotten the privilege to work with many of the people there. They are the most dedicated and passionate people you could have working towards a cause. I also had the honor of being a part of their high-school ambassador program, we were guided from start to finish on how to be the best we could be and help the most people. If you take one thing from this review it should be that NBCF is composed of the most passionate and dedicated people always looking for ways to help people near and far.
I have had the pleasure of working with this organization professional and leveraging their services personally. They are a highly-adaptive organization consistently looking for ways they can leverage available technology resources to further their cause, reach more constituents while simplify administrative processes so they can focus on the real mission....Fighting breast cancer. Personally, I have found their website incredibly informative and beneficial for anyone who is fighting breast cancer or family members and friends looking for more information and how they can help. And their fundraising tools make it easy for anyone to donate or start their own fundraiser.
I have been working with the National Breast Cancer Foundation since I joined the Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care as its Director of Development in late 2016. The NBCF has supported our Breast Health Program for the past couple of years and their support and collaboration has been invaluable and key to the success and continuity of our program. They are great partners in providing feedback, in wanting to learn not only about the results of our program but in wanting to know our patients and their stories. The staff at NBCF, specifically our grant manager Michael Zenteno, is always responsive and happy to answer any questions and/or provide feedback. It has been a delight being part of the NBCF family and we are so grateful of their continued support.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation has become one of the Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care’s key partners in providing education, outreach, screening and the highest quality treatment to women who would not have access to these services otherwise. Together, we are ensuring that our breast navigation team can reach even more people who are underserved by the healthcare system.
Great organization. They fund our annual metastatic breast cancer retreat for patients. Not only that they help set up the program and provide different items for patients. The genuinely care about making difference.
NBCF truly lives out their mission of helping women where they are in their journey. Whether someone's interested in learning more about prevention, or they are in the midst of battling cancer, NBCF has the resources and tools to help. I've personally seen the heart that every staff member has for the mission and they are all very aligned in passion and vision.
NBCF is built on people that care. They want to help women and their families through every stage of breast cancer. Top-notch group of individuals that are on mission every day.
We're a CPG company with a mission to "grow to give" and came to National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) in July hoping to have a program live in October (talk about a tight timeline!). We've been blown away by the support, dedication and passion shown by the entire NBCF team. They respond quickly, are well organized, have created custom content on demand and worked hard to thoughtfully grow our partnership. We're so proud of the greater program to raise support and awareness far beyond our monetary donation. They've set the bar in terms of national, non-profit partnership and we look forward to a long relationship working together to Help Women Now.
It isn't difficult to find nonprofit organizations...it's as simple as searching on google and boom! 2500 results are yours. The difficult part is finding a transparent, reliable, productive and amazing nonprofit organization but lucky for me, NBCF and my company struck a relationship a few years ago and the magic continues to happen year after year. The staff is incredibly efficient, friendly and resourceful. Their outreach programs allow me and my team to feel confident that our assets are in good hands and we look forward to many more years together with NBCF. THANK YOU!!
Our first charity campaign dedicated to the Breast Cancer Awareness Month was held in cooperation with National Breast Cancer Foundation. Its results inspired us to continue our charity initiatives and showed new ways of helping people. We’re thankful to NBCF for all important work they continuously do, for their support and motivation! We’ll be happy to continue our cooperation in 2016!

National Breast Cancer Foundation is a wonderful organization to work with. The staff is extremely friendly, and passionate about the work they do. They are fully committed to providing help, and being a resource to those affected by breast cancer. I have been very impressed with the organization overall.
Three years ago, I met one of my best friends. We did almost everything together, and we adapted each other's hobbies-- one of her hobbies was origami. She quickly taught me many of her favorite pieces, and origami became my passion as well as hers.
We later realized that our new passion could be used to help people-- many people asked if they could have something made specially for them. My friend and I went on (with several other friends) to raise money for the school library by selling origami.
We soon realized we wanted to do something even bigger-- not that a library was not an honest cause, but we wanted to do something that could help change a life. Inspired by a school spirit day to raise awareness for breast cancer, the National Breast Cancer Foundation became our donor's choice of charity.
Over the course of two fundraisers and less than a year, my friend and I made and sold origami at school. We raised over $1,000 for the NBCF, and all the while we were supported by the NBCF. Emails were sent back in forth in communication-- never pushy or urgent or demanding. They sent us ribbons, stickers, and informative pamphlets to help with sales, and consistently checked in with us to ask if there was something they could do to help. They even showcased one of our origami pictures on their Facebook page, which was more than what we could ask for.
Throughout our fundraising experience, the NBCF has done so much to help us and others. Thank you, NBCF, for everything that you do; it has been an honor to work with such a life-changing organization.
If I were to begin another fundraiser, this nonprofit organization would easily be my choice.
Our student-run company sold pink wristbands at all of our branches across campus to raise some money for NBCF. We enjoyed the experience and would do it again.
I appreciated the support I received along the way in the form of personal communication from a representative and paper materials to give out to participants.
I applaud the NBCF for all you do. Thank you for allowing us to participate in a worthy cause.
