How to Apply for Community Grants

Thank you for your interest in the Komen Affiliate grants program. To be eligible to apply for a Komen Community-Based Grant, your organization must:

  • Be a federally tax exempt entity (nonprofit organization, government agency, educational institution or Indian tribe).
  • Be located in the Affiliate service area*.
  • Have a program specific to breast health and/or breast cancer (e.g. if a program is a combined breast and cervical cancer program, funding may only be requested for the breast cancer portion).

Two Grant Classifications:

1. Large Community Grants

For grant requests more than $5,000 specific to the areas of breast cancer early detection/education, patient navigation, and patient assistance/treatment support that reduce breast cancer mortality and morbidity, especially among those who experience disparities related to and/or have disproportional adverse outcomes from the disease.

2. Small Grants Program

For grant requests $250 to $5,000 for short-term projects, mobile breast cancer screening events, travel, conferences and miscellaneous items throughout the year that align with the Komen mission.
