Community Grants

Susan G. Komen Inland Empire is the local resource for women who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support services. Through annual events including the MORE THAN PINK Walk, BigWigs and individual contributions, Komen Inland Empire raises funds that enable women to detect and survive breast cancer. Our community grant program is designed to make systemic, lasting change in our community and enables nonprofit organizations to implement innovative, culturally appropriate, and comprehensive breast health programs in communities where they live, work, play, and worship.

We are proud to have invested more than $6.4 million into our service area to date. Our current funding cycle, April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020 boasts that will provide breast health and breast cancer services to low-income and uninsured women and men in our community.

Seventy-five percent of all funds raised by the Affiliate stay in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties to fund breast health programs for women who would not otherwise have access to screening and treatment. Twenty-five percent of funds raised supports the national Komen Foundation Award and Research Grant Program.

 

THE NEXT KOMEN INLAND EMPIRE COMMUNITY GRANT CYCLE WILL BE OPEN NOVEMBER 2019.
