On Saturday, March 31, 2018, the D-Backs 6th Annual Race Against Cancer drew a record crowd of 3,688 participants! Downtown Phoenix was buzzing early that Saturday morning with those who supported the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation’s event to benefit Arizona non-profit organizations that provide screening, treatment and support for those dealing with all types of cancer. Provision Project is proud to have been chosen as one of the participating non-profits.
Provision Project Founder, Jan James, says, “Through this event, the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation, along with their corporate sponsors, demonstrate their dedication to supporting non-profit organizations that help folks who are going through one of the toughest times in their lives. Provision Project is humbled to have been chosen as one of the participating charities for the 2018 event. Provision Project will continue to work hard to provide financial relief to women in active treatment for breast cancer and to ensure that as many of the dollars we are entrusted with go directly to helping the women we serve.” In 2017, Provision Project had only 7% overhead, with 93% of donated dollars going to applicants’ needs.

Provision Project will be joining Arizona Gives Day, along with hundreds of other nonprofits from all over the state on Tuesday, April 4, to raise much-needed funds. Through azgives.org, donors will be able to support their favorite nonprofit(s) for exactly 24 hours of virtual giving to strive for additional cash incentive prizes. Sponsored by FirstBank, this 5th annual day of fundraising is a community-led effort to invest in our state. Arizona Gives Day has raised $7.4 million for Arizona nonprofits since its founding in 2013.
Provision Project is an Arizona-based non-profit organization that serves women with breast cancer across the country. Founder Jan James says, “We’re very grateful that Arizona has a focused day of giving that will allow all non-profits like Provision Project attract new donors and highlight their mission to the public.”
Breast cancer affects families in devastating ways. Most people think of the physical side effects that women endure when going through treatment. But the financial side effects of breast cancer can be catastrophic to many families. An unexpected, life-threatening illness can make paying the most basic of bills impossible. Provision Project is there to help with emergency provisions, standing in the gap when women have nowhere else to turn.
From now until 11:59 p.m. on April 4, supporters of Provision Project can go to azgives.org and select Provision Project to make a direct contribution. These donations are crucial to helping fund our efforts throughout the year.
About Provision Project
The mission of Provision Project is to provide financial relief to women in active treatment for breast cancer. The breast cancer battle is real. The news of diagnosis is hard to receive. Treatment is scary. And for some women, life has become nearly impossible. Marriages have ended. Jobs have been lost, or they’re too sick to work. Now, in addition to fighting for their lives, they are battling to keep up with the most basic of bills: food, rent, utilities, gas, medical co-pays. It’s heartbreaking.
That’s why Provision Project was created. Provision Project makes a way for women in active breast cancer treatment to receive tangible help quickly. We hope you’ll join us.
You’re in Phoenix at the iconic Arizona Biltmore Golf Club. You’re looking out onto the beautiful Adobe course. Wait. WAIT. What is happening? What is THAT in the distance? Are there CARS sitting on the course? LOTS of CARS?
YES! Please save Saturday, September 30, for “Tee Off for Pink,” Provision Project’s golf tournament/fundraiser. This tournament date is the Saturday before the Biltmore will overseed the Adobe Course for winter grass. All 18 tee boxes will be moved in order to make the yardages between 145 and 191 yards, making each hole “hole-in-one possible.” A brand-new car from 18 Valley dealerships will be sitting on each of those tee boxes, allowing players 18 opportunities to shoot a hole-in-one to win a new car!
This unique tournament format is sure to make for a memorable and fun day of golf. We hope to see you there!
