Partnerships

Our Major Partners and Supporting Partners are helping us achieve our vision that all Australians affected by breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care appropriate to their individual needs.

Founding Partner

Bakers Delight

In 2015, Bakers Delight and BCNA celebrated 15 years of working together to support Australians affected by breast cancer. After the 2015 Pink Bun Campaign the partnership reached an impressive milestone with Bakers Delight having donated a total of $15 million worth of funds and pro-bono services to BCNA.

Each year during Bakers Delight’s annual Pink Bun fundraising campaign more than 600 Bakers Delight bakeries across Australia ‘pink up’ and donate 100% of the sale of their pink finger buns to BCNA. To date, Bakers Delight have sold almost five million buns through the Pink Bun campaign and raised more than $10 million to directly support thousands of women and their families through their breast cancer journey.

In 2016 Bakers Delight is aiming to raise $1.5 million through the 2015 Pink Bun campaign. Money raised by Bakers Delight customers will support BCNA’s information resources, including the My Journey Kit. The campaign will run from 21 April to 11 May.

Major Partners

Berlei and BCNA formed a partnership in 2005 to bring comfort and support to women who have had breast cancer surgery through the My Care Kit program. Berlei support this valuable program through the provision of Berlei post-surgery bras and soft forms, for women who undergo surgery for breast cancer.

BCNA and Berlei have delivered more than 110,000 My Care Kits to woman who have recently undergone surgery for breast cancer. More than 13,500 Australian women received a free My Care Kit last year and BCNA volunteers – most of whom are breast cancer survivors – pack and send more than 250 Berlei post-surgery bras every week.

In addition to the My Care Kit, each October the team at Berlei produce a special 'pink lady' bra to raise additional funds to support our work with Australians affected by breast cancer.

Sussan

Since 2006, Sussan has raised more than $1 million to support BCNA’s programs and services. Every year Sussan stores feature a beautiful range of products from which a portion is donated directly to BCNA. Sussan also provide special clothing for our Community Liaisons and provide opportunities in store to promote BCNA’s work and support for those affected by breast cancer.

In December each year, the St Kilda foreshore in Melbourne is turned pink for the annual Sussan Women’s Fun Run which raises funds and awareness for BCNA. The event is the largest female only fun run in Australia and participants are encouraged to fundraise for BCNA. Last year over 6,400 women took part and raised more than $220,000 for BCNA through fundraising and donations.

Focus on Furniture began supporting BCNA through the Tour de Crawf in 2013. Since then, this family run business has provided other event support and auction items. This year the owners wanted to show a long term commitment to BCNA and all that we do by signing on as a major partner.

Focus on Furniture has stores in Victoria, NSW, ACT and South Australia and are growing every year. Their mission is to set standards of excellence for providing all consumers with the best style, quality, functionality and affordability available. Their company values and demonstrated loyalty make them a great BCNA family member.

Focus on Furniture provides every guest at our Pink Lady Luncheon series a specially designed cushion as a gift.

100% of the in-store sales of the cushions will be donated to BCNA, ensuring we can continue to deliver the best support and information.

Red Energy

Red Energy are proud to partner with BCNA for the second year running to lend support to Australians affected by breast cancer. As Major Event Partner of the Pink Lady AFL Match at the MCG in May, Red turned ‘pink’ for the day with co-branded caps to assist BCNA to raise awareness in front of an estimated crowd of 45,000 football fans.

The Pink Lady Match is a celebration of survivorship,  the opportunity to pay tribute and remember those that are no longer with us. Together we’re seeking a show of solidarity at the Match to support those currently undergoing treatment or living with breast cancer. This important partnership allows Red Energy to work at a community level by enabling BCNA to continue to engage with the football community leading on from the first field of women 10 years ago.

Throughout the year Red Energy will continue to support BCNA with their calendar of events. Their part is to help to continuously raise awareness of breast cancer to the many thousands of people it affects both directly and indirectly. These events help raise awareness and much needed funds which enable BCNA to provide free information, support and services to those diagnosed with breast cancer.

Government support

The Australian Government, through Cancer Australia, supports BCNA across a range of our programs. As part of the Supporting Women in Rural Areas Diagnosed with Breast Cancer (SWRADBC) Program, BCNA receives funding to undertake a program of work to improve supportive care for women in rural areas diagnosed with breast cancer. This helps us to host regional and rural information forums and a National Summit, conduct Community Liaison training, undertake research and continue to develop our online network. The funding also supports the production of the My Journey Kit and Hope & Hurdles.

Victoria State Government
The Victorian Government, through the Department of Health and Human Services, is supporting BCNA to implement Active and Well After Breast Cancer - an exciting two year pilot program to increase the provision of exercise and nutrition information and participation opportunities to Victorian women affected by breast cancer.

The program has a focus on two Victorian communities - north-western metropolitan Melbourne and Greater Bendigo - and is being delivered in partnership with BreaCan and the Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre.
