Susan G. Komen Southern New England® maintains funds raised in each state to support local communities. Seventy-five percent of net funds raised or donated by Massachusetts residents are invested back into Massachusetts-based breast cancer programs.
Massachusetts Breast Health Grants
Komen Southern New England® grants awards to local community-based organizations that facilitate access to breast health screening and treatment for women in our communities. Grant-funded programs implement services that align with our priorities to reduce late-stage diagnosis and mortality.
The Community Profile of Breast Health in Massachusetts identifies the underserved areas of our state and helps direct our funding priorities. Conducted every four years, this comprehensive local project researches the breast health services currently available in Massachusetts and identifies the gaps in service to our communities. These gaps become our funding priorities for the next two grant-making cycles.
