Start the New Year with a Gift to Komen

Worldwide, breast cancer is still the most common cancer in women and the leading cause of cancer death among women. Your support helps ensure breast cancer patients have access to the resources they need – including research, care, advocacy and community.  

This January and February, when you make a gift to Susan G. Komen during one of our 24-hour matches, Komen’s Board will match your gift 4X.  

“With proper access to health services, breast cancer is a disease that can be screened for, detected and many times successfully treated,” said Ed Dandridge, chair of Komen’s Board of Directors. “But for all the advances we’ve made, countless people are still dying simply because they did not have access to the care or information they needed.”  

With your support, we can fund lifesaving research and provide ongoing support and critical assistance to people with breast cancer and their loved ones.  

Ending breast cancer needs all of us.   


*Komen’s Board of Directors is matching individual donations $3 for every $1 donated (up to $10,000 total on each match day) on Jan. 9, 18, 26, 30 and Feb. 29, 2024. All gifts raised above $50,000 during this time will be used where needed most. Match funds only apply to donations for this promotion and do not apply to other programs, fundraisers or events.
