The promise of Susan G. Komen is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for everyone and energizing science to find the cures.

The 2014-2015 grants slate moves Komen closer to accomplishing its goal of investing another $2 billion in breast cancer research and community health programs by 2017. Komen Inland Empire has invested more than $260,000 back into the local community during the 2014-2015 Community Grant Cycle.

Each Affiliate has unique community needs as identified in our 2011 Community Profile. Click here to learn more about how to apply for a grant or learn more about our current grant recipients.

 Komen Inland Empire Community Grant Award History

• Every few years, Komen Inland Empire conducts a Community Profile Assessment to identify local gaps in services. This document serves as a roadmap for the Affiliate to prioritize funding needs.

• An independent volunteer review committee consisting of members from the local communities reviews and evaluates grant application requests based on priorities determined in the Community Profile Assessment, as well as impact, feasibility, capacity, collaboration, and sustainability.

• Up to 75 percent of the Affiliate’s net income goes toward funding grants to community organizations that provide breast health education and breast cancer diagnostic services and treatment support programs for medically underserved women. The remaining net income (a minimum of 25 percent) supports the national Komen Grants Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational and scientific programs around the world.

• Of the 75% that remains in our local community, the following list is the history of all awards granted by the Affiliate throughout San Bernardino and Riverside counties. Your generosity extends beyond these funded programs and services; your support has helped save lives.
