Gift Card Grant Program
For ten years, the StringsforaCURE® Foundation provided Gift Cards to the breast cancer community and in that time we have shipped over 2,276 gift cards to patients in 45 different states providing $226,875 in financial assistance through that program.
We are making changes in 2020 and the StringsforaCURE Foundation’s board of directors decided not to accept any new applications for these grants.
Life is about chapters and we will be entering a new chapter for the StringsforaCURE® Foundation. In August 2020, after we celebrate 10 years of serving the breast cancer community, it is with a heavy heart that our founder Elisa Guida, along with StringsforaCURE board members, Patti Larson, Brenda Berchtold and Donna Rose Sherrange, have made the difficult decision to dissolve our 501(c)(3) charitable organization. We are NOT closing StringsforaCURE due to a lack of funds. This decision was made last year, long before the Covid-19 pandemic.
By the time we dissolve the 501(c)(3), we will have been in existence for 10 years and will have provided over $450,000 to breast cancer patients and their families, through our many financial assistance programs both locally and nationally. This is really a time to celebrate what this small breast cancer charity has accomplished during those 10 years!
We hope that the grants that StringsforaCURE awarded to you or the patients under your care were appreciated and have helped to provide some financial relief to these patients during their breast cancer journey.
