ABOUT SUSAN G KOMEN® AND KOMEN INLAND EMPIRE
Susan G. Komen is the world’s largest breast cancer organization, funding more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit outside of the U.S. government while providing real-time help to those facing the disease. Komen has set a Bold Goal to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50 percent in the U.S. by 2026. Since its founding in 1982, Komen has funded more than $956 million in research and provided more than $2.1 billion in funding to screening, education, treatment and psychosocial support programs. Komen has worked in more than 60 countries worldwide. Komen was founded by Nancy G. Brinker, who promised her sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would end the disease that claimed Suzy’s life. Komen Inland Empire has invested $6.5 Million in community breast health programs in Riverside and San Bernardino counties and has helped contribute to the more than $988 million invested globally in research.

The grant application process is competitive. Whether or not an organization has received a grant in the past, funding in subsequent years is never guaranteed and depends upon the quality of this application, the quality of the applicant pool, ability of proposed grant project to fulfill specified community priorities (as outlined in the RFA) and the funds available for distribution. Recommendations for grant funding are made on behalf of an independent grant review panel representing the Affiliate service region.
