Grantmaking

Non-profit organizations located in or serving residents within the Foundation’s service area working towards improved health and wellness are invited to explore funding opportunities available from the Foundation.

The Foundation offers two competitive grant programs:

  • Small Grants – The Small Grants Program is designed to respond to community needs and provide opportunities for funding requests up to $10,000 that may be too small to be competitive in the Foundation’s Spring and Fall Grantmaking Cycles. This program allows the Foundation to respond to short-term organizational needs in an expedited manner.
    • Applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year, and funding decisions will be announced within a month of submission.
    • For more information on the application process and the full Call for Proposals, please click here.
  • Traditional Grants – A Letter of Interest (LOI) process is utilized for traditional grant proposals. LOIs can be submitted at any time during the year using the Foundation’s online grants management system but will be reviewed by the Foundation two times a year during the Spring and Fall cycles. After the LOI is reviewed, the Foundation will notify the organization on whether it will be invited to submit an application.
     

    • Fall 2022 Deadline for Letters of Interest – Friday, August 19 by 3 p.m.
      Organizations that are interested in submitting a proposal should complete a Letter of Interest (LOI). LOIs must be submitted by 3:00 pm to be considered for the current cycle. Letters submitted after 3:00 pm will be considered for the next deadline. For more information about what information to include in an LOI, the application process, and the full Call for Proposals, please click here.

    • After receiving an application, the Foundation will notify the organization within a few weeks to advise of the decision. Initial interest does not necessarily mean that the organization will be invited to apply for funding. The Foundation manages the number of organizations that are invited to complete the application based on several factors, including funding availability.

Please do not hesitate to contact Foundation staff if you have questions regarding the Foundation’s review process.
