With survivors and activists in more than 118 cities and communities, more than 100 Komen Race for the Cure® events in the United States and three International Affiliates, Susan G. Komen® is the most progressive grassroots organization fighting breast cancer today.
Thanks to more than 100,000 survivors and activists dedicated to the fight against breast cancer, the Komen Affiliate Network is the nation's largest private funder of community-based breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment programs.
Up to 75 percent of the net income from each Komen domestic Affiliate is dedicated to fighting breast cancer in that Affiliate's community. Every year, Komen Affiliates award grants to local hospitals and community organizations that provide breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment programs for the medically under-served. Remaining net income (a minimum of 25 percent) supports the Komen Research Grant Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research and scientific programs around the world.
