Raised Local - Stays Local
BCAK is supported by community donations and memberships. We do not receive any government funding.
All of our funding is raised and used in Kingston and the South East Ontario Cancer Region.
Your membership fee and donations enable us to provide programs and services to local residents and to support local breast cancer research.
At BCAK, ALL the funds we raise are used in our local area to help provide:
Support programs and services to local breast cancer patients, survivors and their families.
Education about breast cancer to all residents in our region.
Support for local research projects that directly benefit persons affected by breast cancer.
Programs for survivors.
Financial aid to cancer patients who find themselves unable to cover their expenses.
BCAK is volunteer-led and volunteer-driven – we have one, part-time paid employee and we strive to keep our operating costs at a minimum so that more of our funds can be used to directly support our programs and services.
Please give generously to help us continue to help others.

Donations In Kind
Women who have breast cancer often acquire books and other reference materials, as well as special clothing, prostheses and equipment to help them deal with their illness.
|f you no longer need these items you may wish to donate them to BCAK. They will be used to help others still fighting their battle with cancer.
Because we are a registered charitable organization, we are able to issue tax receipts upon request for the value of these gifts.
