The Great 48 is a 48-hour fundraising campaign to support the Donna M. Saunders Foundation’s grant program.
A breast cancer diagnosis can often bring financial devastation to a patient and their family.
Our promise to Donna was to assist breast cancer patients in her honor. In fulfilling that promise, our grant program serves as a safety net for those experiencing financial difficulties due to the cost of medical care and the loss of income during treatment. Our program allows breast cancer patients to have some of the stress associated with the financial strains alleviated so they can focus on healing. As of July 1, 2019, we expended all funds budgeted for our grant program. We have opted to forego other budgeted items to ensure we have sufficient funds to support those in need of grants. In 2019, we have assisted with rent, mortgages, car payments, car insurance, medical expenses, groceries, funeral expenses and other daily living expenses for breast cancer patients and their families.
We invite you to donate during the 48-hour period starting at 8:00 am on Sunday, September 1st thru 12 noon on Tuesday, September 3rd. No donation is too small. Every dollar counts.
If you are unable to donate through our online campaign, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for other options.
We hope you will support our efforts to continue our grant program and assist us in keeping our promise.
