Applying for Program Funding

In order to ensure we are funding programs that address the specific unmet breast health needs of our community, Komen Oregon and SW Washington works with local medical experts and community leaders to conduct a comprehensive community needs assessment. This Community Profile is then used to establish funding guidelines and review processes consistent with Komen's standards and mission.

To view our 2015 Community Profile and our funding priorities for the next 4 years, visit the State of Breast Cancer page on our website.
