Community Grants

Komen San Francisco Bay Area is a local source for funding breast cancer detection, support and educational awareness in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Through its 2015-2016 community grants, Komen San Francisco Bay Area is investing in education, diagnosis, treatment and support programs right here in the Bay Area, provided by local organizations that serve uninsured or underinsured residents in our service area. Since it was founded in 1987, Komen San Francisco Bay Area  has invested more than $15 million in local breast health agencies and organizations.

The funds Komen San Francisco Bay Area grants to community programs in our service area have made a positive difference in the lives of those living with this deadly disease.
