ABOUT SUSAN G. KOMEN ORANGE COUNTY
Susan G. Komen Orange County is a local breast health organization helping to serve women and save lives. Komen Orange County was founded in 1991 by a group of individuals committed to the Komen vision of a world without breast cancer. The Affiliate has raised more than $42 million toward the Komen promise. Seventy-five percent of funds raised are invested in local breast health needs and services. The remaining 25 percent is dedicated to the Komen Award and Research Grant Program to fund groundbreaking breast cancer research.
Komen Orange County is at the forefront of ensuring that life-saving breast health initiatives are accessible to all people in the community, regardless of their age or background. Each year, the Affiliate helps thousands of women and men with little or no health insurance receive breast health education, screening, treatment, and support.
Also, the Affiliate provides community grants for innovative projects in the areas of breast health and breast cancer education, outreach, screening, patient navigation, and survivorship to help underserved populations in Orange County. This year, nearly $615,122 in grants were awarded to 10 diverse, local organizations.
Komen’s breast health and services are made possible through year-round fundraising efforts, including the
MORE THAN PINK Walk™ and Pink Tie Ball. The Affiliate is also bolstered by a dedicated network of volunteers that give their time and resources to help with fundraising, event planning, community events, and initiatives as well as provide emotional support to those in treatment.
