Founded in 1997, the North Carolina Triangle to the Coast Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure is dedicated to combating breast cancer at every front.
Seventy-five percent of the funds raised through community fundraising events like the Race for the Cure, Rally for the Cure, 3rd party partner events, individual donations, and corporate philanthropy are invested locally to meet the health challenges faced by women in our 29 county service area.
At the same time, 25% of every dollar raised goes back to the national offices of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, to be used in support to the scientific research, advocacy, and global educational programs that move us closer to our goal of a world without breast cancer.
In 2012 - 2013, we awarded $1.1 million to fund 19 community health programs to meet the needs of people in our state – click here to find a list of the grantee organizations and a brief description of the services they provide.
