Breast Reconstruction Charitable Care Grants

The Plastic Surgery Foundation (The PSF) is committed to supporting organizations that provide charitable care to women seeking breast reconstruction surgery who are in financial need. 

Through The PSF's Breast Reconstruction Awareness Fund, The PSF awards a limited number of Breast Reconstruction Surgery Charitable Care Grants to U.S. based, tax-exempt public 501(c)(3) charities that have demonstrated a commitment to providing breast reconstruction surgery charity care.

Breast Reconstruction Awareness Fund Charitable Care Grants, up to $15,000, are awarded to U.S. based tax-exempt public 501(c)(3) charities that have a demonstrated a track record of providing effective breast reconstruction surgery charity care. Grant funds must be used to directly support the surgical care expenses for women having breast reconstruction surgery, particularly for uninsured and under-insured women in underserved communities. Funds from this grant cannot be used for Plastic Surgeon physician surgical fees or cancer care.


The 2018 Breast Reconstruction Awareness Fund grant cycle is now open. Application deadline is April 4, 2019.
