Thank you for your interest in the Susan G. Komen® Northeast Ohio Affiliate Community Grants Program.
Up to 75% of net proceeds raised by Komen Northeast Ohio each year stay in Northeast Ohio. The funds raised are granted out to local organizations that provide breast health education, screening, treatment support programs targeted to communities and populations most in-need of services. The remaining 25% of the net proceeds support Komen National's Research and Scientific Program.
Komen Northeast Ohio funds innovative projects focused on addressing one of the priorities identified in the Komen Northeast Ohio Community Profile and those that meet the Affiliate's Guiding Principles in Grantmaking. Komen-funded programs provide breast health/cancer education, outreach, screening and diagnosis, and survivorship support services not otherwise available to medically underserved populations in Northeast Ohio, which includes the following counties: Ashland, Ashtabula, Belmont, Carroll, Columbiana, Coshocton, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Harrison, Holmes, Jefferson, Lake, Lorain, Mahoning, Medina, Portage, Richland, Stark, Summit, Trumbull, Tuscarawas and Wayne Counties.
