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, we held our expense ration below 1% (0.03% to be exact) so more than 99¢ of every dollar raised directly funded 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 these times, 2022 looks to be another year of struggle for those with the greatest need. In response, our goal for this year 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. Our goal grows bolder because each year the need for this crucial imagining increases… and because behind each mammogram is a life that can be saved or, at minimum, given peace of mind. We must be more resilient and relentless than this disease. Do you agree?
