Small Grants

Non-profits in the Komen Central Georgia service area can apply for up to $7,500 from our small grants program. These grants are for organizations that direct their efforts specifically towards breast health education and outreach. Projects or events must be specific to breast health/breast cancer, and must be relevant to the Komen Promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures. Priority funding areas include:

  1. Programs that are culturally relevant and aim to eliminate cultural barriers, particularly in African American, Latina, and underserved populations.
  2. Programs that ensure the availability of breast health education in our 8 county service area, specifically our target counties Macon-Bibb, Monroe, and Peach.
  3. Priority 3: Programs that empower individuals to adopt healthy lifestyle choices to reduce one’s risk of breast cancer and/or improve support services for breast cancer survivors within the healthcare continuum.
  4. Programs that improve access to the entire continuum of care.

How to Apply for Funding

Small grants can not be used for services for an individual (e.g. mammography, ultrasound), or development of materials for breast health/cancer projects. These activities fall under the Komen Central Georgia Community Grants Programs.

Small Grant applications may be submitted at any time throughout the year. No applications will be accepted after February 1, 2017.  Applications must be submitted through the Komen Grants e-Management System (GeMS), which is a web-based grant management system for Affiliates of Susan G. Komen to use to receive, review and manage community and small grant applications. When initiating an application on GeMS, please make sure it is a Small Grants application, designated “SG”, and not a Community Grants “CG” application in order to apply to this RFA. Grants received through GeMS by 11:59 PM EST on the 1st of each month will be reviewed at that month’s board meeting. Applicants will be notified of the affiliate’s funding decision generally within 30 days of submitted application on GeMS. Applicants should consider this timeline when submitting a proposal and/or planning a program.

**Be sure you use the Small Grants applications. Applicants should refer to the GeMS Applicant User Guide for more information on how to access GeMS and complete an application.
