Avon Breast Cancer Crusade
The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, which launched in 1992, has placed Avon at the forefront of the fight against breast cancer. Avon’s independent Sales Representatives raise funds for breast cancer programs and provide an army of educators, offering information and raising awareness around the world.
Avon philanthropy has donated more than $800 million through 2016 to breast cancer programs in over 50 countries for research and advancing access to care, regardless of a person’s ability to pay.
The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade has awarded funding to beneficiaries ranging from leading cancer centers to community-based grassroots breast health programs to support breast cancer research and access to care. Avon Breast Cancer Crusade funding has helped build a network of programs globally that cover the full spectrum of breast cancer access to care and research. We have also funded promising research into the causes of breast cancer and ways to prevent the disease and fund access to screening and treatment, with a special focus on helping the medically underserved, including the disadvantaged, elderly, minorities and those without adequate insurance.
In 2017, Avon announced its efforts to build on its 25 year legacy of raising breast cancer awareness with the Avon's Breast Health Promise aiming to ensure that every woman, every day is breast health aware.
In 2018, Avon announced a partnership with the American Cancer Society joining together two iconic names in the fight against breast cancer. As part of its multi-year national presenting sponsorship of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks, Avon’s Representatives and their customers, as well as employees, work to raise critical funds and awareness for Team Avon. Avon also donates a portion of proceeds from the sale of pink hope products to the American Cancer Society’s breast health programs.
