January 25th, 2022 (Nashville, TN)- The Keep A Breast Foundation is proud to announce that, with generous donations and community support for its “Give Back Grant” program, the foundation has just awarded $120,000 in grants for BIPOC women diagnosed with breast cancer.
This reflects a stunning 1,500% increase in donations and community support for the program which first debuted in 2020, aiding 240 women on their breast cancer journey.
BIPOC women applied from all over the United States for the KAB Give Back Grant and reflected varying socio-economic backgrounds in their submissions. The applicants are entrepreneurs, health care workers, wives, mothers, daughters. All survivors. All fighters. Many of whom have started their own organizations and movements towards breast cancer education and have shared their survivor stories so generously to help inspire and bring hope to new breast cancer patients.
KAB would like to thank all of the 2021 applicants for applying.
KAB would especially like to thank the diverse panel of breast cancer survivors who served as judges. They had a difficult and emotional experience reviewing so many amazing applicants.
The KAB Give Back Grant will re-open for applicant submissions in the summer of 2022. Please visit the Give Back Grant page for more information on the program and requirements for minority women who wish to apply.
About the Give Back Grant program
The KAB Give Back Grant directly supports BIPOC women who are breast cancer survivors or have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Different communities are disproportionately impacted by breast cancer and other diseases in different ways. These issues need to be addressed and talked about in order to incite change. This grant program directs 100% of GBG fundraising efforts to BIPOC women who are in need of financial support during their breast cancer journey. The funds can be used for medical treatment, alternative care, financial support, business support, and essential self-care.
