Mission Statement

To save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.

Description

Susan G. Komen is the world’s largest breast cancer organization, funding more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit while providing real-time help to those facing the disease. Since its founding in 1982, Komen has funded more than $800 million in research and provided more than $1.6 billion in funding to screening, education, treatment and psychosocial support programs serving millions of people in more than 30 countries worldwide. Komen was founded by Nancy G. Brinker, who promised her sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would end the disease that claimed Suzy’s life.
Since its inception, Komen Charlotte has made great strides in improving breast health services and reaching out to the underserved members in the local community. We have an established annual grant funding program to award local breast health organizations for innovative breast health projects in a 13-county service area. We hold multiple fundraisers during the year and accept donations from individuals businesses that are passionate about our mission.
