Happy New Year and thank you for all you have done to support the foundation.
It is my sad duty to announce that we have decided to close the foundation. After more than 11 years of fundraising for ovarian cancer research towards early detection and a cure, the Teal Ribbon Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation, Inc. has regretfully decided to close, and cease operations.
We will be able to accept and process donations up to March 31, 2016.
There are various business, personal and financial reasons that resulted in this choice. This obviously was not an easy decision for the Board to make, but in the end is the right and responsible one.
We truly thank you for your support of the foundation, Board of Directors, event volunteers and we are very grateful for your participation at our events.
Together we DID make a difference.
If you are interested in making donations or organizing and hosting your own fundraising event, please contact Carolyn Brown at the University of Pennsylvania Ovarian Cancer Research Center (215-573-0550, firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Teal Ribbon Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation, Inc. (TROCRF) is a non-profit 501c3 organization.
Our goals are to raise funds to advance ovarian cancer research towards a cure; advocating for early diagnostic treatment programs and to improve the lives of ovarian cancer survivors.
