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:

  • 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. For more information on the Traditional Grants Program, please click here.
    • 2020 deadlines for LOIs:
      • Spring – February 1
      • Fall – August 1
    • Letters of Interest must be submitted by 3:00 pm on the deadline to be considered for the current cycle. Letters submitted after 3:00 pm will be considered for the next Letter of Interest deadline.

The Review Process

After receiving an organization’s request, the Foundation will notify the organization within a few weeks to advise of the Foundation’s 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.
