Keeping it local
The Pensacola Breast Cancer Association is a Pensacola, Florida-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2003. The Board of Directors is made up of all uncompensated volunteers, which enables us to devote the maximum amount possible to achieving our exempt purpose. Since inception in 2003, the PBCA has raised and distributed approximately $650,000 to local healthcare organizations that are consistent with our mission.
We are a local charity—All funds received stay here in the local community, to benefit our sisters, neighbors, and friends.
The mission of the Pensacola Breast Cancer Association is to raise money for education, screening and diagnosis of breast cancer in the Florida Panhandle indigent and under-insured patient population.
We will take part.
We will speak out.
We will do whatever it takes.

Currently, the funds raised are distributed to Baptist Health Care and Sacred Heart Hospital. Through our funds, both hospitals provide free mammograms to women(and some men) who are underinsured or without insurance altogether.
