Funding Priorities

  • 75% of our net proceeds stay in Florida to fund vital breast health education and breast cancer screening, treatment and patient navigation grants.
  • 25% is contributed to the national Susan G. Komen for the Cure Grant Program to fund groundbreaking breast cancer research.

Funding

Through the Susan G. Komen Florida’s 2015  Community Profile Report, we have identified the following funding priorities:

Priority groups are Seniors (age 50 and older), Hispanic/Latinas especially those that have relocated from Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria, women of African descent, and women of Ashkenazi Jewish descent that are at greater risk for late-stage diagnosis and/or breast cancer death with no mammogram/screening in two (2) years or more.
  • Provide culturally competent breast health outreach and education to individuals with limited financial resources (at 200 percent or below the Federal Poverty Guidelines) to encourage women to initiate early detection and screening services, and provide follow up support if needed. Priority groups are Seniors (age 50 and older), Hispanic/Latinas, women of African descent, and women of Ashkenazi Jewish descent that are at greater risk for late-stage diagnosis and/or breast cancer death with no mammogram/screening in two (2) years or more.
