In more than 18,000 communities across the U.S., more than 75,000 Susan G. Komen for the Cure volunteers work to help fund breast cancer education, screening and treatment projects for those who need it most. Last year, Komen for the Cure Affiliates—working in concert with local organizations—awarded more than $93 million in needs-based community grants. That's in addition to the many millions Komen invests each year in promising research.

In order to ensure they are funding programs that address the specific unmet breast health needs of their communities, Komen Affiliates work with local medical experts and community leaders to conduct comprehensive community needs assessments. These community profiles are then used to establish local grant application and review processes consistent with Komen's standards and mission.
