Seventy-five percent of Komen Colorado's net proceeds stay in Colorado for breast-cancer screening, diagnostics, treatment and education. The remaining 25 percent supports the national Komen Grants Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational and scientific programs around the world.

Since the affiliate's inception, more than $33 million has been raised for local nonprofits that provide breast health and breast cancer services to the medically underserved. Almost $14 million has been raised for breast cancer research.
