HOW WE ARE FUNDED
Our agency is a funded partner of the United Way of Southwest Michigan. We are very grateful for the funding that is provided to us.
Other important sources of income come from private contributions in the form of memorials for individuals, direct contributions by individuals or groups interested in our services and occasionally from bequests from the estates of decedents.
Fundraisers may be sponsored by individuals or groups who desire to support our mission of care to cancer patients. We also sponsor our own fundraisers such as Pennies For Patients™ and the Berrien County Cancer Service Bike Ride. Detailed information regarding these fundraisers may be found on our website.
All of our funds come from local sources. We do not receive any funds from national organizations or the fundraising campaigns of the American Cancer Society, Relay for Life, Easter Seals or similar organizations.
