The next round of annual funding for UK organisations working in the areas of breast cancer support and research is now open for proposals.
Registered charities, community interest groups and social enterprises with a legal constitution and charitable objectives may apply.
The Foundation will consider applications from general cancer charities if any grant made will be used to benefit at least 50% of patients that suffer from breast cancer or for research into, or the dissemination of information about, breast cancer.
Projects should aim to:
- Relieve the needs of people who are suffering from, or have been affected by, breast cancer by providing, or assisting in the provision of, information, care or emotional, practical and financial support.Advance public education in the understanding of breast cancer, its early detection and treatment, in particular but not exclusively by commissioning, or conducting, research into the causes, detection and treatment of breast cancer and by disseminating the results of such research.
Grants should cover costs directly relating to a project. However, up to 15% of requests can be for unrestricted funding for the organisation to use as it deems necessary.
In 2023, groups with limited financial resources to deliver their activities will be given priority.
The deadline to apply is 26 May 2023.
