Susan G. Komen for the Cure

Who they are: Susan G. Komen for the Cure was founded by Nancy G. Brinker in 1982 in honor of her sister Susan, who died of breast cancer at just 36 years old. The nonprofit has since raised more than $1.9 billion for breast cancer research, and prides itself on its efforts to transform the way breast cancer is talked about and treated.

What you can do: Volunteer to help with one of Komen’s many fundraising events, ranging from marathons to art exhibits. If you live in the New York area and you’ve got cash to spare, Komen’s World Yacht Beauty Brunch for the Cure fundraiser (hello boat outing, brunch and spa day rolled into one for just) will be held on Oct. 16 (tickets are $59). You can also get involved with advocacy projects at the local, state and national levels.
