Community Grants

Komen Northwest NC offers grants for innovative projects in the areas of breast health and breast cancer education, outreach, screening, and treatment support targeting services not otherwise available to the medically under-served populations of our 22-county service area of Alamance, Alexander, Alleghany,  Ashe, Avery, Burke, Caldwell, Catawba, Davidson, Davie, Forsyth, Guilford, Madison, Mitchell, Randolph, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry, Watauga, Wilkes, Yadkin, and Yancey counties.

To be eligible to apply for a Komen Community Grant, your organization must:

  • Be a federally tax-exempt entity — nonprofit organization, government agency, educational institution or Indian tribe.
  • Be located within Komen Northwest NC’s 22-county service area.
  • Address one of our funding priorities as listed in the Request for Applications.

The Community Grants are awarded once a year in March, have structured agendas, and require a Request For Application (RFA).

The Community Grant RFA will be released by October 10, 2016 with an application due date of December 9, 2016, 5pm EST. At minimum, the Project Director will be required to attend at least one training session in order to be in compliance and move into the review phase of the application process.

Small Grants

This program provides funding for expenses related to hosting a conference or travel to conferences which will provide education to the participant, thereby enabling the participant to have an impact on the service area of Susan G. Komen Northwest NC. You can apply for a small grant any time throughout the year through our Grants Management System, GeMS.
