The mission of the Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust, Inc. (IBCAT) is to increase awareness and improve access to breast cancer screening and diagnosis throughout Indiana. IBCAT receives funds through sales of breast cancer awareness specialty license plate. Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust plate sales began in January of 2002.
Through these sales, monies are available for grants deemed to best address the unmet screening needs of the people of Indiana. Each Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness plate sold generates a $25.00 donation. The Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust is a 501(C) 3 Not for Profit organization incorporated in the State of Indiana.
We invite you to consider becoming a part of our mission: Our Grant Application is accepted during the months of September &/or October to provide funding for Breast Health programs. For an overview of our organization and highlights of one of our funding programs, view our video.
