Eligible Funding Areas
Responsive grantmaking is the Foundation's strategy to direct resources to emerging and unmet needs within the health care field. The Foundation funds select health-related projects which align with the Foundation’s Grantmaking Framework. Fundable projects seek to have measurable impact on health and well-being.
Grants will not be given for propagandizing and/or influencing legislation or elections, political campaigns, programs that promote religious doctrine, events, endowments, annual fund drives, non-applied research, general operating expenses, or retirement of debt.
