Apply for Community Grants

Community Grants are designed to make a lasting impact in communities that are underserved and uninsured by implementing sustainable, evidence-based, culturally appropriate, and compassionate, as well as comprehensive breast health services, among populations and geographic areas of Orange County that are found to have the highest rates of late stage diagnosis and mortality rates.

Each nonprofit organization awarded a Community Grant by Susan G. Komen Orange County® plays a critical role in advancing the Komen mission to save lives.

The grant application process is competitive. Whether or not an organization has received a grant in the past, funding in subsequent years is never guaranteed and depends upon the quality of this application, the quality of the applicant pool, and the funds available for distribution.
