How to Apply for Funding
2015 GRANT APPLICATION DEADLINE: JANUARY 9, 2015 - 5:00 PM CST
About the Komen Minnesota Community Grants Program
Susan G. Komen Minnesota is committed to ensuring that all individuals have access to breast cancer education, outreach, screening, and treatment support. Especially important in our Community Grants Program is eliminating the barriers that - far too often and in far too many communities - prevent women from gaining access to screening, which in turn results in late-stage breast cancer diagnoses, fewer treatment options and lower survival rates.
To address these needs, Komen Minnesota administers a robust community grants program which in 2014 totaled over $1.1 million distributed to 18 organizations, including the Minnesota Department of Health Sage Screening Program. Our rigorous grantee selection process assures funded programs uphold the integrity of the Komen name and meet the needs of diverse communities throughout the state of Minnesota.
Applying for Funding
All applications must be completed and submitted online via the Grants eManagement System (GeMS). GeMS is a complete online grant management system that will allow grant applicants to complete their applications and grantees to submit progress and final reports online.
Click here to view the GeMS Application Orientation Webinar tutorial for essential information to help you get started and then go to https://affiliategrants.komen.org to register. Returning applicants who are already registered in GeMS do not have to register again and can log in and initiate their application. For those applicants who are new to our online grants management system (GeMS), we require that you review the tutorial in its entirety before you register on the GeMS site.
Applications for the 2015-2016 grant cycle are due by 5:00 PM CST on Friday, January 9, 2015. Final funding announcements will be made in March 2015.
We encourage those interested in applying to start early and leave plenty of time to complete the process. Please contact Denise at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance or have any questions.
