In more than 18,000 communities across the U.S., more than 75,000 Komen volunteers and staff work to help fund breast cancer education, screening, and treatment programs for those who need it most. Working in concert with our Affiliates and local organizations, we awarded more than $57 million in needs-based community grants in FY14. That's in addition to the many millions we invest each year in promising research.Our Community Health approach is designed to reduce breast cancer mortality in communities throughout the United States. We have many different types of programs to address the various needs of local communities.
