Our Mission

It’s simple.  Komen Central Indiana is fighting breast cancer.  How?

  • Beginning close to home, we use donated dollars wisely, locally and in ways that directly benefit women, men and families who are dealing with the costly challenge of breast cancer in our community. We also empower local dollars to serve beyond our community as they fund a significant portion of the best breast cancer research around the world.
What We Do

Komen Central Indiana is the local source for funding programs that provide breast health services, breast cancer education and outreach in central Indiana.

Through generous gifts of time, money and personal commitment, Komen Central Indiana helps local women today with early detection of breast cancer and the navigation of treatment. We help women tomorrow by funding research that makes early detection easier, care better and outcomes more successful.

Since 1997 Komen Central Indiana has awarded over $20 million in community grants to local organizations that deliver breast health services in our 41-county service area. .

The Difference We Make

Komen Central Indiana is part of the big picture to eradicate breast cancer.  But we’re also focused on the local needs of our neighbors. Donations to Komen Central Indiana save lives of women we all know and love within the place we call home.
