What’s New for Major Grants

Our Major Grants will fund organizations, programs or initiatives that align with our mission. Grants will support organizations that positively impact health, and improve access to health services and information for marginalized or underserved persons.

Grant seekers may apply for either General Operating Support or Programmatic Support, choosing the one that best fits their need(s).

General Operating Support: Grants will support the organization’s overall mission and goals rather than specific projects or programs, and should help strengthen the organization or further its charitable purposes. General Operating Support is unrestricted and can be used to underwrite an organization’s administrative or infrastructure costs, or help to maintain core programs and essential staff.

Programmatic Support: Grants will provide funding for specific projects and activities that are intended to result in an increase in access to health services or an improvement in the health status. Projects may focus on eliminating barriers to health, advocating for health reform or systems change, providing health navigation and care coordination, or capacity-building efforts to improve or strengthen the organization or its programs.

The deadline to submit a Letter of Intent application is January 17, 2019 at 12 pm (noon).
