The Nebraska Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure raises funds to support the Komen Promise save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure was established in 1982 by Nancy Brinker to honor the memory of her sister, Susan G. Komen, who died from breast cancer at 36.
The Nebraska Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure raises funds to support the Komen Promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.

The majority of the funds we raise come to us through the Komen Nebraska Race for the CureĀ®, held annually in October. Other sources of revenue include fundraising events, individual and corporate donations, and memorial or celebration contributions.

Seventy-five percent of donations raised by the Nebraska Affiliate stay in the state of Nebraska area to provide services to the women of our community. Most of that money is distributed though the Nebraska Affiliate's Community Grants Program. These are grants made to statewide nonprofit organizations to provide educational, screening or treatment support services to the women of our community. Special emphasis is placed on grant applications focusing on breast health education among minority women in culturally appropriate formats, including appropriate literacy level; and on projects providing free and/or low cost breast screening services for underserved and uninsured women in their communities.

At least 25% of net donations to the Nebraska Affiliate are put directly toward breast cancer research through the Komen International Grants Program, one of the nation's most innovative, responsive grant programs. The Komen International Grants Program is unique in its focus on research projects with potential for high impact that may not be considered by other agencies. Available grants include: postdoctoral fellowships, population-specific grants, basic, clinical, and translational research grants, imaging technology, dissertation research, and honor awards.

The Nebraska Affiliate also provides services to raise awareness and provide education about breast cancer and breast health issues.

We will also bring our informational booth to corporate and community health fairs. Breast health brochures, including breast self-exam shower cards, are available for any size event.
