Allegany Franciscan Ministries’ FY20 grants will fund organizations, programs, or initiatives that strategically align with its mission, as well as its focus to improve the overall health status of underserved communities. Grants will support organizations that positively impact the health of individuals, families, and communities, and improve access to health services and information for marginalized, vulnerable, underserved or economically disadvantaged residents.

Allegany Franciscan Ministries has a single Major Grant process with two separate applications: 1) General Operating Support, and 2) Programmatic Support. Prospective grant partners should complete one application for either General Operating Support or Programmatic Support, choosing the one that best fits their need(s). Click on blue links below to read full program description and review application process. 

General Operating Support: These 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. Requests may be submitted for a total amount of up to $100,000, and not more than 25% of the organization’s annual operating budget.

Programmatic Support: These grants will provide funding for specific projects and activities that are intended to improve the health status of those served. Projects may focus on eliminating barriers to health, advocating for health reform or systems change, or providing health navigation and care coordination. Programmatic Support may also include capacity-building efforts to improve or strengthen the organization or its programs.
