The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is committed to funding breast cancer research, education and awareness programs and advocacy, and has been for 25 years. In 2012, the Foundation allocated over $26.5 million towards cause related work, of which $19.8 million was allocated towards breast cancer research grants across the country.
Our rigorous grant review process and focus on the full spectrum of breast cancer research, education, advocacy and other cause related work establishes the Foundation as a respected leader in the breast cancer community.
Our commitment to funding breast cancer research is strong. We fund innovative breast cancer research grants through each of the Foundation's four regions and on a pan-Canadian basis.
Stand Up To Cancer Canada
CBCF is pleased to announce the launch of a new national research competition focused on accelerating research on new treatments for breast cancer. This competition will involve the creation of a new Stand Up To Cancer Canada - Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation Breast Cancer Dream Team, supported by CIBC. The priority for the competition was selected by the CBCF National Grants Committee with consideration to the CBCF National Grants Survey results. A call for ideas has been launched and the SU2C Canada CBCF Breast Cancer Dream Team, supported by CIBC will begin their work in summer 2015.
