Up to 75 percent of the net funds raised by Komen North Texas stays in our 13-county service area to fund breast health education, breast cancer screening, and treatment projects. The remaining 25 percent of net funds supports the national Susan G. Komen Research Grants Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards, and educational and scientific conferences around the world.
Current North Texas Funding Priorities
- Programs that promote and enhance access to breast cancer screening and diagnostic services by reducing barriers for low-income, uninsured, underinsured, and otherwise underserved populations.
- Programs that support strategies that are designed to reduce the economic, physical, and emotional burdens of a breast cancer diagnosis by providing access to treatment and treatment support services for those who are low-income, uninsured, underinsured, and otherwise underserved.
