Susan G. Komen San Diego’s Community Grants program is made possible through individual donations, corporate support, and events such as the San Diego Race for the Cure. With the funds raised, community grants are made to support evidence-based strategies or promising practices to reduce disparities in breast cancer mortality in our community. The San Diego Affiliate is currently accepting letters of inquiry for breast health or breast cancer projects within San Diego County that support and promote access to and utilization of services that address the continuum of care model. Interested applicants are required to first submit a letter of inquiry to indicate interest in Komen funding. After review of the letter of intents, organizations selected will be notified to submit a request for application.
The funding period for the 2015-2016 Community Grants Program is April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016. Submission for this granting period is now closed. Please check back to see if additional funding becomes available.

The goal of the community profile is to identify gaps in services, improve breast health services and be more aware of populations most in need of breast health services.
