Grants to San Diego County, California nonprofits, such as hospitals or other medical facilities, educational institutions, and community organizations for breast cancer screening, education, patient navigation, and care support services. Funding is intended to support evidence-based strategies or promising practices to accomplish the Foundation's Bold Goal to reduce breast cancer mortality rates by 50% by 2026.

The goal of funding is to increase access to breast health care, ensure quality and access throughout the continuum of care, and reduce breast cancer mortality, especially among those who are disproportionately affected by this disease.

Priority Area Categories

Access to Screening and Diagnostic Services (site-neutral): The Affiliate seeks to fund projects that support and provide breast cancer screening and diagnostic services within San Diego County.

Identified Project Needs/Examples:
a. The Affiliate seeks to fund one major grant that will provide breast cancer diagnostic services for those who do not qualify for the Every Woman Counts program and those between 200% and 300% FPL. In addition, screening services for those with a high breast cancer risk (20% or higher) may also be provided. The grantee would serve in a fiscal agent capacity for diagnostic services within San Diego County. ($250,000 grant limit)
b. The Affiliate seeks to fund one major grant that will provide breast cancer mammography screening services and diagnostic mammography services in San Diego County through mobile mammography efforts. The grantee would serve those with some insurance, those who are eligible for Every Woman Counts and those who are uninsured and do not qualify for the Every Woman Counts program between 200% and 300% FPL. ($130,000 grant limit)

Care Coordination (site-neutral): Serving all of San Diego County, including uninsured, underinsured and undocumented: ($50,000 grant limit):

Identified Project Needs/Examples:

Patient Navigation (clinic and/or hospital based): ($40,000 grant limit): Projects that support clients within a clinical or hospital setting. Programs target a defined set of health services required to complete an episode of breast cancer care, focus on the identification of individual patient-level barriers to care, and aim to reduce delays in accessing the continuum of care services to ensure patients progress into treatment from an abnormal finding within the 90-120 day period. In addition to caring for uninsured/underinsured, the Foundation is seeking programs aimed at HMO insured as well.

Patient Financial and Transportation Assistance (site-neutral): ($150,000 grant limit): Project that provides needed patient financial support as well as access to transportation to the medically underserved, uninsured or underinsured. All financial support must be available to residents within all of San Diego County.

Support Services: ($40,000 grant limit):

Project Examples:
a. A site-neutral project that would provide meal delivery for patients and their families going through the diagnosis and breast cancer treatment process. This project would serve all of San Diego County.
