The 2014-2015 Community Grants deadline has passed.

The 2015-2016 Community Grants RFA will be released in the Fall of 2014. Deadlines, dates and additional information  are yet to be determined. Please anticipate changes from the 2014-2015 priority counties and funding priorities.

Submission Requirements

All applications must be submitted online through the Komen Grants e-Management System (GeMS). Training on use of the GeMS system will occur at the grant workshop in Fall of 2014. New users must register in the system. Please contact Julie McMahon for assistance.

The grant application process is competitive. Whether or not an organization has received a grant in the past, funding in subsequent years is never guaranteed and depends upon the quality of this application, the quality of the applicant pool, and the funds available for distribution.

To be eligible to apply, your organization must be:

  • A federally tax-exempt entity — non-profit organization, government agency, educational institution or Indian tribe. Individuals cannot apply.
  • Serve one of the following 30 counties in our area: Athens, Champaign, Clark, Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Gallia, Guernsey, Hocking, Jackson, Knox, Lawrence, Licking, Madison, Marion, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Morrow, Muskingum, Noble, Perry, Pickaway, Pike, Ross, Scioto, Union, Vinton and Washington.

Important Dates

During the summer of 2014, Komen Columbus is conducting its Community Profile process, which will inform revised grant funding priorities and priority counties. Please stay tuned for details as the become available.
