Small Grants Program

Eligibility requirements include but may not be limited to the following:

  • Applicant must be a 501(c) organization (non-profit organization, educational institution and/or government agency) and provide proof of non-profit status if it is not already on file with the Affiliate. Checks cannot be issued to individuals; they must be issued to the 501(c)3 organization.
  • Applicant must be operating within the Komen Affiliate’s service area, and funded activities (except travel) must take place within the service area.
  • Funding requests should not be for a project that would normally be eligible for funding through the yearly peer-reviewed Komen Utah Community Grants program.
  • Funded activities must be consistent with and specific to the Komen mission.

Grant applicants are restricted to a maximum combined award of $5,000 per fiscal year, per program for any type of Small Grant (Travel, Conference and/or Program Support Grant).

The Small Grant program can allow us to fund grassroots organizations, to help them incorporate breast health into their activities and create a new partner for our Affiliate.  Small grants must not exceed $5,000 and they are not to be used to supplement existing grant programs.  This is a unique opportunity to explore ways to reach new communities, fund innovative projects and build new partnerships.

Funding for Small Grants is on hold pending budget review for the next fiscal year.  Please check back for more information or you may contact Leanne Peters at
