Grant Cycle Underway

The Komen Columbus Grant Program is designed to support organizations in Central and Southeastern Ohio that offer breast cancer education, screening and treatment services to local residents, particularly the uninsured or medically under-served. The work of our passionate grantees is crucial and life-changing, and brings us closer, day by day, to eradicating breast cancer as a life-threatening disease. The list of 2010-2011 Grantees is available here.

Komen Columbus grantees provide education to several minority groups.


Through a community needs assessment, we have identified the following priorities to further determine our grantees’ focus:

1. Screening of high-risk and underserved populations, especially focusing on women over the age of 40.
2. Breast health education and Screening Referral Programs
3. Treatment and Survivorship issues that require medical treatment or assistance

Seventy-five percent of the money raised by Komen Columbus stays in Central and Southeastern Ohio to support organizations (our grantees) that provide life-saving services to local residents in the following counties: Athens, Champaign, Clark, Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Gallia, Guernsey, Hocking, Jackson, Knox, Lawrence, Licking, Madison, Marion, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Morrow, Muskingum, Noble, Perry, Pickaway, Pike, Ross, Scioto, Union, Vinton and Washington.
