Mission Statement

Busted Foundation was organized for charitable and educational purposes. Specifically, Busted Foundation exists to aid those in medically related hardships through financial or educational assistance.

Busted Foundation will initially focus its’ efforts funding breast cancer patients in California; starting in Southern California then expanding into the entire country as it grows. The goal is to eventually be able to provide charitable assistance to the entire nation. Busted Foundation will be able to quite easily expand its’ educational coverage to the entire nation by creating a comprehensive database of charity programs and grants in a single location. Our operations are funded primarily through contributions from the public, including, but not limited to individuals, nonprofit organizations, government agencies and corporations.

There are a myriad of financial sources available to those in need but most members of the public are unaware of their existence. Busted Foundation will endeavor educate the general public on the wide varieties of public charitable assistance available. Education will take the form of a free website (WWW.BUSTEDFOUNDATION.ORG). The website will host documents and videos detailing both sources of assistance available to the general public and education on the procedures to follow when seeking assistance. This would act as a central location for seekers

Would you recommend BUSTED FOUNDATION?

by Will M. (2012-11-29 19:23:39.0)
I would recommend Busted Foundation because I have witnessed them change lives. It is just incredible to hear the stories from people who have been directly affected by cancer, and how Busted helped them. It also matters greatly to me that this is a smaller and local charity since it allows them to be more agile and efficient. Bottom line: Busted Foundation is an amazing organization that is making a difference, one person at a time.

The Busted Foundation is a fantastic local non-profit! I didn't mind lending plenty of work time to them at all. I would definitely recommend them because what they do and stand for makes a huge impact. After seeing the results and support for Bowling for Boobies and breast cancer awareness month, I felt proud to be involved in just a little part of a great organization.
