Susan G. Komen 2017-2018 Community Grants Program

The promise of Susan G. Komen is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for everyone and energizing science to find the cure. Here in San Diego County, one of the ways we continue to fulfill our mission is through our Community Grants program which provides funding for breast health and cancer education, screening, patient navigation, care coordination, and support services like patient financial aid, meal delivery and more.

The funding period for the 2017-2018 Community Grants Program is April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018. 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 to include an invitation to a Grant Application Workshop to be held the first week of December. These applicants are then invited to submit a full Grant Application.

The 2017-18 Komen San Diego Grant Process will begin with the Grant Making & Networking Workshop on August 24, 2016 from 10 a.m – 12 p.m. at 4699 Murphy Canyon Road (the United Way Building). We encourage those interested in submitting a Letter of Interest, new and returning alike, to attend the workshop to receive the 2017-18 LOI, as well as information and changes about the 2017-18 Grant Making Process. Please RSVP for the Grant Making & Networking Workshop.
