In the Susan G. Komen SCWI 19 year history, more than $6.1 million has been granted to LOCAL non-profit organizations providing services to the members of our community most in need. In 2016 alone, our local Affiliate granted $360,065 for mammograms, breast cancer treatment, access to treatment, education, and survivorship programs.
Up to 75% of the net proceeds generated by the Affiliate stays in our service area of Dane, Rock, Sauk, Dodge, Iowa, Green, Columbia and Jefferson counties. The remaining 25% is contributed to the National Breast Cancer Research Grants and Awards Program to fund breast cancer research, including metastatic and aggresive disease. Our local Affiliate has contributed $2.3 million to the National Breast Cancer Research Grants and Awards Program. This program has awarded over $5 million to the UW Hospital.
Local Affiliate funds do not cover expenses at the national Komen office. They are responsible for their own expenses through other resources.
