It only takes about $125 to fund a life-saving mammogram for a woman in need through our Community Grants Program. All donations – from a few spare dollars dropped in a Dietz & Watson Pretty In Pig bank, to a $50,000 estate contribution and everything in between – are greatly appreciated and vital to our mission. And, remember a simple inquiry to the H.R. department could double your impact if your employer has a matching gift program! Also in this section: In Memory / In Honor cards, a special tribute to the loved one inspiring your donation.
