The consolidation of Susan G. Komen® Central and Northern Arizona and Susan G. Komen® Southern Arizona into Komen Arizona aims to establish a stronger, more sustainable affiliate that will be better positioned to help even more women and men throughout Arizona who are affected by breast cancer. The mission will remain a top priority, and consolidating operations will allow the Affiliate to drive even more resources to support the Arizona community.
As a combined force, Susan G. Komen® Arizona (Komen® Arizona) remains committed to fulfilling the Susan G. Komen Promise: to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality of care for all and energizing science to find the cures.
Seventy-five percent of the funds raised here stay here.
Together, Susan G. Komen® Arizona has been raising funds and supporting Arizona communities for 23 years, generating more than $35.6 million in donations. To date, more than $26.6 million has been allocated to local education, screening and treatment programs.
The remaining 25% of funds raised are invested in the Susan G. Komen® Research Grant Program managed at the national level. To learn more about Susan G. Komen’s research investment, click here. Our total research investment since 1993 is $9 million.
