Where Your Money Goes

Susan G. Komen is the world’s largest breast cancer organization, funding more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit while providing real-time help to those facing the disease. 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. Susan G. Komen Northern & Central California is working to better the lives of those facing breast cancer in the local community. Through events such as the Susan G. Komen Sacramento Valley Race for the Cure® and Susan G. Komen Central Valley Race for the Cure®, Komen Northern & Central California has contributed nearly $22 million to both breast cancer research and community breast health programs in 29 counties throughout Northern & Central California.

Our Community Grants program is designed to make systemic, lasting change in our community. We are proud to have invested nearly $22 million locally since 1997. Our funding cycle runs from April 1 – March 31 every year.
