Community Impact

Susan G. Komen Louisiana is the local resource for women who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support services. Through annual events including the Race for the Cure and individual contributions, Komen Louisiana raises funds that enable women to detect and survive breast cancer.

Seventy-five percent of all funds raised by the Affiliate stay in our service area to fund breast health programs for women who would not otherwise have access to screening and treatment. Twenty-five percent of funds raised supports the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program.

Before merging as one, each affiliate raised the below amounts in local breast health and breast cancer awareness projects:

Komen Baton Rouge raised more than $3.7 million in a 10 parish service area.

Komen North Louisiana raised more than $5.7 million in a 22 parish service area.

Komen Acadiana raised more than $3.4 million in a 24 parish service area.
