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. Komen Missouri is working to improve the lives of those facing breast cancer in the local community. Through events like the Komen Greater St. Louis MORE THAN PINK Walk, Komen Missouri has invested $30 million in community breast health programs in 38 counties and has helped contribute to the more than $800 million invested globally in research.
Our Community Grants program is designed to make systemic, lasting change in our community. We are proud to have invested more than $30 million locally since 1999. Our funding cycle runs from April 1 – March 31 every year. Click here for more information on our Community Grants program.
We’ve made great strides in fighting this devastating disease, but there’s much work left to do to fulfill the growing needs in our community. Your generous support will help us realize the vision of a world without breast cancer.
The money donated goes to helping the 38 counties that Komen Missouri proudly supports. See if your county is one them below!
