25th Anniversary Campaign
We did it!
Almost three years ago, Living Beyond Breast Cancer kicked off a campaign to celebrate the organization’s 25th Anniversary. The goal was ambitious, and in many ways aspirational.We are so proud to announce that because of the generous donations from 63 families, we surpassed our $1,000,000 goal in late 2019. Each of these donors are an important member of the Living Beyond Breast Cancer family, and a strong link in the chain that helped us reach this important milestone.
The funds raised have already been put to work to expand our resources into new audiences including those who speak foreign languages, reach more low-income women impacted by breast cancer, provide more virtual programming through our website and social media, and introduce Living Beyond Breast Cancer to new audiences.
During the campaign:
- we built the second largest Facebook following among nonprofit breast cancer organizations in the United States, and added a “closed” community for women to meet and engage with others 24-7.
- our blog has been named “Best Breast Cancer Blog” for the past two years by Healthline, the second largest and fastest growing consumer health publisher in the world, reaching over 100 million people a month.
- our email list of healthcare providers has tripled with now over 9,000 contacts, all of whom are sharing our resources and information across the country.
- our four-star Charity Navigator rating was renewed for the 15th consecutive year! This is the highest possible rating from this national charity watchdog. It verifies that we exceed industry standards and outperform most nonprofits as less than 1% of charities evaluated have received this landmark designation. We take best practices seriously and appreciate the acknowledgement.
These achievements keep us going during times of uncertainty. While new major advancements in breast treatment have occurred during the campaign time frame, far too many of our loved ones are lost from this unpredictable disease. Through it all, Living Beyond Breast Cancer remains a trusted resource and community of support for all those facing breast cancer. We will work diligently to share effective treatments, engage in advancing research with our partners, and create a supportive community.
Thank you for believing in us and trusting us with your philanthropy. It is an honor to work with so many on this mission and vision.
