Community Grants Program
Susan G. Komen Central and South Jersey fulfills its mission of eradicating breast cancer forever, in part, by offering grants to non-profit organizations that provide breast cancer detection, support and educational awareness to men and women in need living in our 13-county service area.
Since 1994, Susan G. Komen Central and South Jersey has raised nearly $16 million for local community grants. This year, Komen CSNJ awarded $600,000 in grants to 9 local organizations funding programs that will reach nearly 10,000 individuals with breast health education and provide over 1,900 free mammograms, diagnostic tests and support services, including patient navigation, transportation and financial assistance for out-of-pocket costs.
