Colleen Sorbello Breast Cancer Foundation DBA PINK CLOVER is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization
charitable ID# 47-4415194 and has earned the GuideStar Gold Seal of Transparency. Our core mission is to assist women who are struggling while battling breast cancer. Currently 1 in 8 women in the us will develop breast cancer.
Pink Clover was formed by friends and family after Colleen’s passing, and remains focused on 3 key fundamentals. Research, Education, and Comfort.
We have partnered with the University of New Haven & Penn Medicine to fund research, such as, university studies and cancer center case trials.
Our Lecture Series is our community outreach that connects us with communities providing seminars on breast cancer related topics, outreach and support programs and partners with the help from our partners Inspira Health & University of Pennsylvania.
Along with providing financial grants to our recipients, we continually offer moral, spiritual, and social support. Also, with the help of our hospital partners like Penn Medicine, Inspira Health Network, and AtlantiCare, we donate bags of goodies to women while they are receiving their treatment, and provide financial help with essentials.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much of the money raised goes toward helping women?
To do what we do, there are certain expenses we incur. Insurances, legal fees, domain for website, and costs related to facilities for the events. No one at Pink Clover is compensated. Our board of Trustees volunteer their time as does our chairman. So after basic reoccurring expenses, all the money goes to helping women who need the help, with the largest focus on the comfort piece.
I want to help / volunteer. How do I do that?
We run events throughout the year, and we learned early on two important things? We can’t do what we do without help, and everyone is good at something. Visit out website www.pinkcloverfoundation.org, contact us through Facebook or Instagram, or simply email any of us.
Can I create my own fundraiser with my team for the charity?
Definitely!!, Scouts, schools, clubs, and more have successfully raised money for the cause. We supply the logos, guidelines, and other marketing materials if necessary. We are also sure to recognize what you’ve accomplished through media, website, and letters if needed for college apps. Everything Matters. We’ve accomplished a lot from the many little things others have done.
What is BASTAZO?
BASTAZO (bear one another’s burden) is a store in Ocean City NJ structured much like us with a focus on assisting families burdened with cancer. All volunteer, and run by Cyndi Sorbello. It is completely non-profit, all of the net proceeds go toward helping others.
