Komen Philadelphia Community Grants

If there’s any question what it means to be More Than Pink™ take a look at the Komen Philadelphia grantees. Every day the teams at our grantee organizations make an impact by breaking down barriers throughout our community, connecting to those most in need of early detection and breast health care and, ultimately, saving lives. They are doctors, nurses, navigators and educators who, together, are making sure more breast cancers are getting diagnosed and treated successfully.

For the 2018–2019 grant cycle, Komen Philadelphia is distributing $425,000 in new grants to organizations in our service area. These grantee programs are expected to accomplish the following:

  • Screening mammograms: 1,270
