At the end of every fundraising year, Komen Colorado uses 75% of net funds to support local communities through our Community Grants program, which pays for medical expenses for medically underserved Coloradans in need of breast cancer screening, diagnostics, and treatment care; and through our local public policy work to increase access to life-saving breast health care.
Komen Colorado contributes the additional 25% of net funds every year to the Komen national office to be combined with our sister affiliates’ revenues to fund global breast cancer research.
As a non-endowed foundation, Komen Colorado’s ability to meet the ongoing need in our community is tied to annual revenues raised through our signature Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® in Denver, Pink Tie Affair, Snowshoe for the Cure® and other Affiliate events.
For more information about our financial history and spending, please review the 2016-2017 Final Audited Financial Statements.
