Community Impact

MORE THAN $1 MILLION RE-INVESTED BACK IN TO THE COMMUNITY

Susan G. Komen® Greater Kansas City is the local resource for women who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support services. Through annual events including the Race for the Cure®, Pink Promise Brunch, Rock the Ribbon and individual contributions, Komen Kansas City raises funds that enable women to detect and survive breast cancer.

Seventy-five percent (75%) of all funds raised by the Affiliate stay in our service area to fund breast health programs for women who would not otherwise have access to screening and treatment. Twenty-five percent (25%) of funds raised supports the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program . Komen Kansas City has raised more than $11 million in local breast health and breast cancer awareness projects in our 17-county service area.

But that’s just a piece of what Komen Kansas City invests each year … More than $1 million is re-invested back in to the community this year through:

Local grantees (Focusing on education, screenings, diagnosis & treatment)

National research (including grants in our service area at the University of Kansas Cancer Center)

Mission Support (Grants program, community organizing, public policy work, outreach & breast health service referrals)
