Where Your Money Goes

An Overview of Komen New Orleans Grantmaking Process

Komen New Orleans works to ensure that all people, regardless of race, income, geographic location, sexual orientation or insurance status, have access to screening, and if diagnosed, to quality, effective treatment and treatment support services.

Our Community Grants program is designed to make systemic, lasting change in our community. We are proud to have invested more than $6.4 million into New Orleans since 1992. Our current funding cycle, April 1, 2020 – March 31, 2021, boasts 2 programs totaling $70,000 that will provide breast health and breast cancer services to hundreds of low-income and uninsured women in our community. Our current community programs are:

St. Thomas Health Community Health Center – $60,000
Funding for the Breast Cancer Patient Navigation and Care Coordination Program

Touro Infirmary Foundation – $10,000
Funding for the Cancer Care Navigation Copay Deductible Program

The positive impact of this funding is significant, but it is not enough – as the need in our community continues to grow.
