Susan G. Komen®, the world’s largest breast cancer organization, awarded more than $100 million in research grants last year, representing the largest single-year investment in research in the organization’s 27-year history and a 30 percent increase over the previous year’s award total of $77 million. The 2013-2014 grant slate moves Susan G. Komen closer to accomplishing its goal of investing another $2 billion in breast cancer research and community health programs by 2017.

Any not-for-profit organization that provides breast health and/or breast cancer education, screening, or treatment services may apply for a grant.
