Apply for a Susan G. Komen® San Diego Grant

The promise of Susan G. Komen is to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our community and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer. Furthermore, Komen is currently working towards reducing breast cancer death rates in the U.S. by 50% by 2026. Here in San Diego County, one of the ways we continue to fulfill our mission is through our Grants program which provides funding for gaps in breast health and cancer services.

The funding period for the 2020-2021 Community Grants Program is April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021. Interested applicants are required to first submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) to indicate interest in Komen San Diego funding. These LOIs are then reviewed, and selected applicants are notified and sent a Request for Application (RFA) to include an invitation to a Grant Application Workshop to be held in November 2019.

The 2020-21 Komen San Diego Grant Process is kicking off with the Grant Making & Networking Workshop to be held August 21, 2019. All interested parties are encouraged to attend the workshop to get updates about Komen San Diego’s grantmaking process, learn how to submit a LOI and learn about other breast health organizations in San Diego! Please RSVP for the workshop here.
