Komen for the Cure Named One of America’s Best Charities
Susan G. Komen for the Cure has been named one of America’s 100 Best Charities by Worth magazine. The magazine credited Komen as the creator of the “now famous and widely imitated Race for the Cure®” and noted that since its inception, Komen has raised more than $600 million in the fight against breast cancer.
Donations are a vital part of our fundraising efforts. A contribution to Komen Greater NYC is a very personal way for individuals and organizations to remember or celebrate loved ones who have been affected by this disease. Your gift will help us achieve our vision of a world without breast cancer.
In spite of the drop-off in the economy, there will be no drop-off in the alarming rate of breast cancer diagnoses. We need your donations to maintain levels of support to our grantees who are on the front lines in providing comprehensive breast health education, screening and treatment with the funds we raise.
We need your help — now more than ever — to weather these difficult and trying financial times. The State of New York has already threatened funding for vital breast health programs and will likely do so again in the upcoming fiscal year. With your help, we can supplement this funding through our grants, which help close the gap for under- and uninsured women.
Please consider a donation of whatever you can afford to Komen Greater NYC this year.
Every dollar helps. No donation is too small.
All donations are considered unrestricted funds and will be used to support breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs in greater New York City, as well as national research to find the cures. To learn more, visit Where Your Money Goes.
