BCEF provides emergency financial assistance to low-income individuals battling breast cancer, enabling them to keep up vital medical treatments, keep paying their utility bills, prevent eviction and maintain stable housing.
Forty-one percent of BCEF clients in Silicon Valley have dependent children at home, and their average individual monthly income is only $597.
In 2014, through the training sessions in storytelling, social media and marketing, SVGives helped BCEF raise $33,000 in a single day.
With this funding, BCEF was able to serve approximately 50 women battling breast cancer in Silicon Valley. SVGives enabled BCEF to expand its visibility and donor base on the Peninsula, and helped add 60 new donors to the organization.
