Community Impact

Susan G. Komen Puget Sound 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 Puget Sound raises funds that enable women to detect and survive breast cancer.

Up to 70 percent of the Affiliate’s net income stays in our service area to fund breast health programs for women who would not otherwise have access to screening and treatment.

Over the past 21 years, the Komen Puget Sound has invested more than $23 million in local nonprofit, tribal and government agencies that provide breast health and breast cancer services to medically underserved residents living in our 16-county service area. In 2015, Komen Puget Sound awarded $845,000 in grants to 8 local organizations and agencies that will provide vital services to over 15,000 underserved women.
