Susan G. Komen Greater NYC Development Intern
About Susan G. Komen Greater NYC
In 1980, Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister Suzy that she would do everything in her power to end death by breast cancer. In 1982 that promise became the Susan G. Komen organization. In 1991, Komen Greater NYC was founded by Good Housekeeping Magazine Publisher John Mack Carter. Now in our 30th year, Susan G. Komen Greater NYC is the largest of the 60 Komen affiliates. Since our founding, New Yorkers have raised more than $80 million to fund local programs, serving thousands of underinsured women diagnosed with breast cancer and funding breast cancer research.
Susan G. Komen is the pink ribbon that connects the Greater NYC Metro Area breast cancer community. Through the dedication and leadership of the Board of Directors, Susan G. Komen Greater NYC raises $4,000,000 annually. We are a preeminent investor in local, cutting-edge programs that reduce disparities in access to care and help women get to breast cancer services and treatment sooner so they can live longer. Susan G. Komen Greater NYC’s Service Areas included Manhattan, Queens, Bronx, Kings, Richmond, Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, and Rockland Counties.
