Pink Fund Founder Earns 'Money Hero' Award


BLOOMFIELD HILLS —  Molly MacDonald, founder and CEO of The Pink Fund, has been named to Money magazine’s list of “50 Heroes, 50 States” representing Michigan for her work to provide 90 days of non-medical financial assistance to breast cancer patients in treatment.

“50 additional hard-working people of all ages, including children, are doing amazing things to help others financially,” MacDonald says. “It’s an honor to be included on this list with them, representing my home state.”

On what it takes to be a Money Hero, the magazine editors said: “Hard work, a little financial savvy, and a lot of desire to help others … We sought out a hero from each state and the District of Columbia, taking nominations from past honorees, leaders of nonprofit groups, community-service coordinators at for-profit firms, and you, our readers. The result is a remarkable lineup of people doing good works all across the United States.”

The Pink Fund provides individuals in active treatment with 90 days of financial assistance to cover non-medical expenses, such as health insurance premiums, housing, transportation, and utilities.  For more information, visit
