About the Komen Wisconsin Community Grants Program
Susan G. Komen Wisconsin is committed to ensuring that all individuals have access to breast cancer education, screening, high-quality treatment, and support during and after treatment. Especially important in our Community Grants Program is eliminating the barriers that — far too often and in far too many communities — prevent women from gaining access to screening, which in turn results in late-stage breast cancer diagnoses, fewer treatment options and lower survival rates.
Komen Wisconsin is proud to award more than $1 million to 11 community partners in 2017-2018. Komen Wisconsin has raised more than $18 million since its inception in 1999 to enable women and men in Wisconsin to detect and survive breast cancer.
Seventy-five percent of all funds raised by the Komen Wisconsin stays in here in Wisconsin to fund breast health programs for women who would not otherwise have access to screening and treatment. Twenty-five percent of funds raised support the national Komen Foundation Award and Research Grant Program.
Because of our generous supporters, in 2015-2016, Komen Wisconsin funded the following:
- 2,684 clinical breast exams and mammograms
- 1,671 diagnostic services
- 2,810 received financial support services
- Impacted more than 25,805 persons through educational outreach
