Ever thought about ways to do good, but aren’t sure where to start? Do you enjoy supporting trailblazing women? Medical research? If you answered yes to either (or both!) of these questions, UncommonGood’s fundraising event is for you!
By participating in our monumental first giveaway, you have the chance to support an organization committed to doing good — and enter to win a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork along the way.
This virtual event benefits the life-changing organization, Breast Cancer Alliance.
Founded by six women dedicated to improving the outcomes of breast cancer patients, Breast Cancer Alliance has been a trailblazer in the field for 25 years. BCA funds innovative, early-stage research and fellowships for future breast surgeons. But BCA does more than invest in the future of medical care and treatments; they are also actively serving those impacted by the disease today.
3 Reasons to Support This Groundbreaking Organization
They Support Researchers
As a major private foundation, BCA is committed to providing seed funding for clinical doctors and research scientists. Funding innovative thinkers and doers gives medical professionals a stepping stone for their research to eventually be eligible for federal support. BCA supports scientists where they can, right from the start — and we admire that fierce commitment to doing good!
They Ensure Early Detection is Possible For All
The number one reason that breast cancer survival rates are now near 90 percent is because of the advancements made in early detection and awareness education [citation]. BCA lets this statistic guide their mission-driven work: they dedicate grant funding every year towards early-detection education for women. Providing additional access to screening and care for underserved women, BCA ensures finances aren’t a barrier to accessing quality healthcare.
They Are All About Community
BCA isn’t just insularly comprised of doctors and researchers in lab coats. They are active in welcoming and connecting people to be part of their cause, and foster communities of like-minded change-makers all around the country. Whether it’s a fundraiser walk or an awareness campaign to help educate other women, BCA’s community of volunteers shows up time after time — and that’s the kind of passion we’re all about.
Enter To Help & Win
Through their dedication to mission-driven work and their desire to tangibly create change, BCA stands as an organization UncommonGood applauds and respects. We’re honored to help support such a worthwhile cause through our inaugural fundraiser, and we can’t wait to amplify their efforts further alongside our community. We hope that you connect with BCA’s cause, and spread the word about our first-ever UncommonGood event! Not only will participating benefit Breast Cancer Alliance, but also the thousands of women their life-saving research and services support each year.
Now on to the event details! (because who doesn’t love putting a little fun into some fundraising?)
This coming Wednesday, June 2, 2021, participating entrants will enter to win a one-of-a-kind work by renowned California artist and textile master, Lia Cook. Valued at $35,000, this piece, “Spatial Ikat III,” is museum-worthy and crafted by an innovator in her field. Cook’s work has been hailed as groundbreaking since she entered the textile art scene in 1973; her art is found in dozens of museum collections, including at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
This unique opportunity to support BCA is made possible by our event sponsor, browngrotta arts. Located in Wilton, Connecticut, browngrotta arts will utilize UncommonGood’s revolutionary technology to host the event benefiting BCA for their Art for a Cause 2021 project.
