Community Impact

Susan G. Komen Inland Empire is the local resource for women who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support services. Through annual events including the Race for the Cure and individual contributions, Komen Inland Empire raises funds that enable women to detect and survive breast cancer.

Seventy-five percent of all net funds raised by the Affiliate stay in our service area to fund breast health programs for women who would not otherwise have access to breast health services. Since 1999, Komen Inland Empire has invested more than $6.2 million in local breast health and breast cancer awareness programs and services throughout Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. Twenty-five percent of net funds raised supports the Susan G. Komen® Research Grants Program . Komen Inland Empire has invested more than $2 million in breast cancer research since inception.
