Full disclosure: I worked at the Philadelphia Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure in the grantmaking capacity. I am currently on the board of Gilda’s Club, an agency that provides support services for people who have cancer.
In light of the recent Komen news about their funding priorities, I’d like to suggest an alternative for your donations that you would have sent to Komen.
Please consider keeping your donations in support of the work being done to support people who have been diagnosed with cancer. These groups, like Gilda’s Club, struggle to have the visibility they need to collect enough revenue to support everyone who needs their services. No one at Gilda’s Club pays for the services they get.
