How We Are Funded


As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, Pink Lemonade Project relies on broad community and individual support to fulfill our mission.

First and foremost, we have many individuals, businesses, and supporters from across the region who share a passion for helping those affected by breast cancer and want to contribute to our cause. We also get financial and in-kind support in the form of sponsorships from local companies and healthcare organizations.

Pink Carts

With the long-time partnership with Waste Connections, Pink Lemonade Project is able to offer pink recycling bins to residents of Clark County who have Waste Connections for their recycling service. For a donation of a minimum of $100, Waste Connections will swap out a Pink Cart for the standard blue bin at your home.

Pink Glow: The Party With a Purpose

Throughout each year, we hold some beloved annual fundraising events that help us raise essential funds so we can do our work to serve those affected by breast cancer.

Pink Glow is our largest annual gala and attracts over 400 attendees to celebrate the community of those served by Pink Lemonade Project for the previous years. The 2021 event will be held virtually on May 15.

Toni Mountain Fund for Treatment Access

Pink Lemonade Project is the new home for the Toni Mountain Fund for Treatment Access. This fund assists underserved breast cancer patients throughout Oregon and SW Washington with food, lodging, and transportation during their treatments. Toni Mountain is a long-time survivor and local breast health champion, who retired from Susan G. Komen Oregon & SW Washington. The Fund, established in 2014 to commemorate Mountain’s retirement, is a donor-designated fund that raises money to sustain the Treatment Access Program.

Girlfriends’ Run

We are fortunate to have a partnership with the local event company, WHY Racing. In October 2021 (date TBD), Pink Lemonade Project will be a beneficiary of the 15th Annual Girlfriends Run.

The event offers a Half Marathon, 10K & 6K designed specifically for women to get together to do something good for themselves and to help support a very important women’s cause.

Pink Lemonade Project recruits 25 men for the Pink Bridgade Guys and 25 women for the Glam Gals teams. Each runner or walker agreed to raise $500 each for participating but then get a free registration for the race.

Fundraisers Hosted by Others

Pink Lemonade Project is lucky to have individuals who set up their own fundraisers to help raise money for Pink Lemonade Project and the people we serve. Called third-party fundraisers, these events may occur during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month but not always. Contact us if you want to hold an event or fundraiser for Pink Lemonade Project. We likely have some sway to share or can provide you with material about our organization and cause.
