Follow the money: how investment decisions get made

More than 20 San Diego non-profit organizations attended Susan G. Komen San Diego’s Grant Making & Networking Workshop on Thursday, Aug. 24, 2017.

Our funding focus is based on Komen San Diego’s Community Profile Report which identifies disparities and existing gaps in breast health services within San Diego County and serves as the basis for our competitive grant making process.

Komen San Diego invests in nonprofit organizations (501(c)(3), through our community grants program to provide an array of breast health and breast cancer services with an aim to create seamless systems of care for medically underserved women and men living in San Diego County.  Grant applications must address our priorities and fall into one of the funding areas as indicated in the Request for Application (RFA) and the community profile.

Interested grantee applicants are required to first submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) to indicate interest in Komen San Diego funding. These LOIs are then reviewed, and selected applicants are notified and sent the RFA to include an invitation to a Grant Application Workshop. These applicants are then invited to submit a full Grant Application. To learn more about our review process and how we monitor the work our grants fund, visit our Grant Making Process, here.
