Description

The SOUTHWEST FLORIDA AFFILIATE of Susan G. Komen for the Cure http://komenswfl.org was established in November of 2002 as an incorporated 501(c)(3) corporation. The Southwest Florida Affiliate is charged with the purpose of furthering the Komen mission in Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry, and Lee Counties.

Up to 75 percent of the net proceeds raised by the Affiliate will remain at the local level to fund a variety of community-based breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment projects for the medically underserved. A minimum of 25 percent of net proceeds will support the Komen Foundation Award and Research Grant Program.

Since our inception we have funded over $7.1 million in community grants and contributed $2.3 million to the Komen Award and Research Grant Program.
