Grantmaking Vision and Mission

Susan G. Komen for the Cure seeks to ensure that all people, regardless of race,
income, geographic location, or insurance status, have access to screening, and if
diagnosed, to quality, effective treatment and treatment support services.

The Aspen Affiliate supports this on a local level by funding an array of breast health
and cancer services that together create seamless systems of care for underinsured
and uninsured individuals in our tri-county service area.

    Education Grants

The Affiliate will consider funding as follows:
•     Evidence-based programs are defined as those that have been implemented,
      evaluated and found to be effective in promoting behavioral change or empowering
      individuals to make good breast health decisions.
        Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T. (
        The Guide to Community Prevention Services (
•     Emerging programs are defined as those that are likely to be effective in promoting

         underserved community i.e. rural, GLBT community, and communities of color.

Screening Grants

             All Screening Projects MUST screen women for Women’s
            Wellness Connection (WWC) first

             Komen funding should be used as a last resort

             It can be a disservice to the patient to not screen them for
               WWC, as not doing so limits their access to government-
            funded treatment services

             Screening applicants must adequately explain how they will
            appropriately screen women for WWC and Komen program

             Screening applicants must submit a letter from WWC
