The Pink Fund

The Pink Fund provides financial aid to women & men afflicted with breast cancer. The Pink Fund has been formed to help women and men suffering from breast cancer focus on healing, raising their families and returning to the workplace. The Pink Fund will provide short-term financial aid during the brief period of active treatment and recovery. Millions of dollars are being raised for research and programs for the medically underserved, but despite this there are many families facing breast cancer who urgently need financial help now. The Pink Fund provides this help.

Since 1998, when the Miss Universe Organization made the decision to support breast and ovarian cancer survivors, each Miss USA has spent thousands of hours educating the public about breast and ovarian cancer. Due to her participation in events like breast cancer walks, seminars and telethons, our titleholders have helped raise millions of dollars for research. Miss USA will spend countless hours working with groups like Susan G. Koman for the Cure, Gilda's Club and the USO.

Gilda's Club

It is the vision of Gilda's Club Worldwide to become the international leader for strengthening the global awareness of this philosophy, and to advance an understanding of the essential bond that emotional and social support brings to the cancer experience, not only for those living with cancer, but also for the families and friends who surround them.


The USO is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to support the troops by providing morale, welfare and recreation-type services to our men and women in uniform. The original intent of Congress - and enduring style of USO delivery - is to represent the American people by extending a touch of home to the military. The USO currently operates more than 135 centers worldwide, including ten mobile canteens located in the continental United States and overseas.

Susan G. Koman for the Cure

Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the global leader of the breast cancer movement, is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists. They work together to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®, and generous contributions from our partners, sponsors and fellow supporters, they have become the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
