Why we’re partial to Pink
Over the past 14 years, Bloomingdale's has contributed more than $12 million to the fight against breast cancer. Every October, we raise awareness and funds through our Pink Campaign, which includes everything from exclusive products and in-store events to our Give Pink, Get More program.
These initiatives have enabled us to support the work and research of five doctors through a grant to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation®, as well as to fund projects for The Carey Foundation and the Marisa Acocella Marchetto Foundation.
BREAST CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION®
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, is dedicated to ending breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research.
BCRF-funded investigators have been deeply involved in every major breakthrough in breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. From 2017-2018, BCRF invested $59.5 million to support the work of more than 275 scientists at leading medical and academic institutions across 15 countries, making BCRF the largest private funder of breast cancer research worldwide.

THE CAREY FOUNDATION
The mission of The Carey Foundation is to raise funds for women, men and their families to ease the financial burdens that come with a breast cancer diagnosis.
Through The Tutu Project, the Foundation provides partnership opportunities to nonprofit organizations that share their vision for an empowered breast cancer community.

MARISA ACOCELLA MARCHETTO FOUNDATION
The Marisa Acocella Marchetto Foundation's mission is to empower uninsured and underinsured women with breast cancer and breast cancer survivors to receive the best possible care for the best possible outcome without being concerned about the financial ramifications.
In 2014, the Foundation launched the Marisa Acocella Marchetto Empowerment Program, offering free holistic care, healthy cooking, exercise, chi gong, yoga, creative writing and more to the patients of Mt. Sinai Beth Israel Comprehensive Cancer Center. The Foundation also funds cold-capping—an innovative procedure that minimizes hair loss caused by chemotherapy.
