Breast Cancer Assistance Group of Monterey County (BCAG) is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization of breast cancer survivors who raise funds and awareness to improve the lives of local breast cancer patients and their families.

What We Do


We provide need-based grants to help breast cancer patients with their basic living expenses.

How We Differ

Unlike national breast cancer charities, your contributions benefit recipients in our local Monterey County community.

Our Mission

"We want to help other women with this disease as we would want to be helped ourselves."

Breast Cancer Facts

1 in 8 local women experience breast cancer

   As I regain my strength and life returns to a level of normalcy, I want to thank each and every one of you for your consideration and financial support. Your check arrived when things were looking grim and basic expenses had become overwhelming. I will never forget this gift of money and the uniqueness of your organization.
