Susan G. Komen saw 22 percent drop in contributions
(AP) - Susan G. Komen for the Cure saw a drop of 22 percent in contributions in the year following the controversy over its decision, quickly reversed, to stop giving grants to Planned Parenthood for breast cancer screenings.
Citing audited financial statements posted on its website this week, a spokeswoman for the Dallas-based breast cancer charity said contributions -- including donations and corporate sponsorships -- dropped from about $164 million from the fiscal year ending in March 2012 to $128 million in the year ending March 2013.
After news of the Planned Parenthood controversy broke in January 2012, several executives left and numbers fell at its fundraising Races for the Cure across the country.
