Our Mission

To save lives and end breast cancer forever.

What We Do

Susan G. Komen® Austin is an Austin-based nonprofit committed to saving lives locally and fighting breast cancer globally. Komen Austin is the only local breast cancer organization attacking the disease on all fronts – education, screening, treatment, follow-up care, survivorship support, advocacy and research. The organization serves the women and men in the city’s five-county area battling breast cancer by removing barriers to care for the uninsured and underinsured. Of the funds raised annually, Komen Austin invests up to 75 percent into local community health care grants and educational initiatives; the remaining 25 percent is invested into global research studies to find the cures for breast cancer.

The Difference We Make

In the last five years alone, Komen Austin funding has provided more than 64,000 life-saving breast health services to uninsured and underinsured community members. We are committed to saving lives locally and fighting breast cancer globally. The funds we raise make more breast health services available locally and more research studies possible around the world. No woman should die of breast cancer because she can't access care. We work every day to ensure that survival is the outcome for the women in our community and that one day we will find the cures for breast cancer.

The Difference You Make

Join Komen Austin in the fight to beat breast cancer.  You can donate your time or resources or host a fundraiser in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis or Williamson Counties.  You can know your normal and encourage those around you to know theirs too.  You can be a listening ear or strong shoulder to family and friends who are in the battle.  And you can be an inspiration and tell your story as a survivor.  There is a place for you in this fight.  Your dollar might be the one that ultimately finds one of the cures.  Your presentation might encourage a listener to get a mammogram and find her cancer at an earlier stage.  Contact us today.  We’re powering the promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever together!
