Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer
Vera Bradley Co-founders Barbara Bradley Baekgaard and Patricia R. Miller began raising funds for breast cancer research in 1993 after the loss of their dear friend, Mary Sloan. Since then, their genuine commitment to this cause has evolved into the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer. Together with our donors, event participants and volunteers, we hope for a future free from breast cancer. Women rally together at events such as the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Classic Golf and Tennis Tournament (the nation’s largest amateur event of this kind) to support the cause. To date, the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer has raised and donated over $30 million dollars!
The Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer is focused solely on investing in breast cancer research — 86 cents of every dollar donated to the Foundation goes to breast cancer research. Currently, the Foundation funds research at the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Research Laboratories at the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Community Harvest Food Bank
Community Harvest Food Bank was established in 1983 with the mission to alleviate hunger through the full use of donated food and other resources. 97% of all food bank income goes directly to hunger relief programs — nearly 90,000 unique individuals are served every year, and 13.1 million pounds of food are distributed annually!
