An Overview of the Komen El Paso Grantmaking Process

Komen El Paso works to ensure that all people, regardless of race, income, geographic location, sexual orientation or insurance status, have access to screening, and if diagnosed, to quality, effective treatment and treatment support services.

Our Community Grants program is designed to make systemic, lasting change in our community. We are proud to have invested more than $4.3 million into El Paso since 1992. Our current funding cycle, April 1, 2014 – March 31, 2015, boasts six projects totaling $239,464 that will provide breast health and breast cancer services in our community. Please see 2014-2015 Grantee Summary.

The positive impact of this funding is significant, but it is not enough – as the need in our community continues to grow.
