Executive Compensation at Susan G Komen (2017-2018)

The Susan G Komen organization is not just one organization managed by a small group of executives but two organizations:

  • the Foundation (The Susan G Komen Women Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc) which is often referred to as the “parent” organization since it is largely supported by the local affiliates (68 in the US and 1 International affiliate that give approximately 25% of the net funds raised to support the Foundation) along with contributions through fundraising; and
  • the Group (The Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Group) which is the 69 affiliates that conduct more than 300 fundraising events annually.  

Both organizations are 501 (c) (3)’s based out of the same office in Dallas, Texas.  Although both organizations engage in similar functions – fundraising, grant making (research at the Foundation while screening, treatment, and education at the Group), and program services, think of Group as the consolidation of all the local affiliates while the Foundation as the parent organization. Consequently, there are the executives that manage the foundation and the individual CEO/Executive Directors that run the 69 affiliates. Read more »
