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. Since 1999 Komen Austin has invested over $10.2 million into breast health services and educational efforts in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson counties. An additional $4 million has been raised to fund global research studies to find the cures for breast cancer. 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 to find the cures for breast cancer.

The Difference We Make

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 batting breast cancer by ensuring that barriers to care are removed for the uninsured and under-insured. Komen Austin encourages the local community to help save lives and end breast cancer forever by participating in year-round fundraising efforts and our signature events - the Susan G. Komen® Austin Race for the Cure and the annual Pink! Party.

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!
