FUNDING OPPORTUNITY– Avon Foundation Breast Care Fund
The Avon Foundation Breast Care Fund (AFBCF) is accepting applications for 2010 funding. The mission of the AFBCF is to link medically underserved women to breast health education and screening services. Medically underserved women need targeted, customized approaches to enable them to obtain regular mammograms and clinical breast exams. Successful programs have: culturally-competent educational strategies; dedicated staff with specialized language and communications skills; and participation from members of the targeted community who can reach women where they live, work and worship, and who offer personalized assistance to women for whom it is often difficult to access health care.
Application Deadline: August 28
