Pink Ribbon Jax has your back… And your front, too!
Our heartfelt gratitude to you for helping Pink Ribbon Jax improve and save lives! If we’ve demonstrated anything these past two unsettling years, it is that together the seemingly impossible becomes inevitable.
Together, in 2021, we surpassed our goal of funding 1,500 life-saving mammograms for women and men who could not otherwise afford this vital screening. Due to the generosity of our sponsors and donors, we held our expense ration below 1% (0.03% to be exact) so more than 99¢ of every dollar raised directly funds our cause!
Together, we also, educated the community about breast health, and lit Jacksonville pink in support of those battling this disease who felt isolated..
Together, this is the impact we have on the lives of families in Jax… and one of the foremost reasons the Association of Fundraising Professionals, First Coast Chapter, recognized Pink Ribbon Jax with the 2021 National Philanthropy Day Award for Outstanding Fundraiser.
As we continue to rise to the challenges of the day, it is critical for our much-needed program – Expanding Access to Life-Saving Mammograms – to grow and endure. In response to what is needed most, our goal for 2022 is to fund 1,650 mammograms for uninsured women and men! Each free mammogram to the community provided by the two hospitals PRJ’s efforts benefit – Baptist Health and Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville – costs, on average, $300. The goal grows bolder because behind each mammogram is one life potentially saved, and entire circle of family and friends saved from loss.
Together, we can make sure every person has a fighting chance to survive breast cancer. And it all starts with a mammogram.
