Vera Bradley Co-founders Barbara Bradley Baekgaard and Patricia R. Miller began raising funds for breast cancer research in 1993 after the loss of their dear friend, Mary Sloan.Since then, their genuine commitment to this cause has evolved into the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer and $30.3 million in contributions so far. Together with our donors, event participants and volunteers, we hope for a future free from breast cancer.
“89 CENTS OUT OF EVERY DOLLAR donated to the Foundation directly benefits breast cancer research.”
An important thing to know: Every time you purchase ANY Vera Bradley item a percentage goes directly to the Foundation. This is true every day, every week, every month.
