The Berrien County Cancer Service, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization funded by the United Way of Southwest Michigan, private and corporate donations, and through fundraisers such as Pennies for Patients™ and the BCCS Art Festival. In addition, our program is made possible in part by a grant from the Berrien Community Foundation. By being community funded, we are able to provide skilled nursing to those with high health needs but who are not eligible for in-home skilled nursing through reimbursements by insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid. To continue our services at no cost for those with cancer or related serious illnesses in Southwest Michigan, we need your help. ALL donations stay in our southwest Michigan community.
Donations to our General Fund enables us in our day-to-day operations of having registered nurses visiting those with cancer to provide skilled nursing care in their homes as well as providing items from our loan closet and handing out nutrition for those currently in treatment. Donations to our Endowment Fund will help guarantee that the Berrien County Cancer Service will be available for as long as needed. Your contribution to our non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation is tax deductible. We will send you an acknowledgment and receipt for tax purposes.
Donations can be made in honor of someone or in memory of a loved one. In these instances, we would like to send an acknowledgment to the honoree or family, so please provide that information when making your donation.
