The right resources in the right place at the right time.
We can't change the world by ourselves. Partnering with others who share our vision and values is the only way to bring about real improvements in the healthcare system. Our Community Grants program is one way we are working with others to increase access to quality care. Organizations that receive grant funds from us are working to improve access to jobs, housing, food, education, and health care for people in low-income and minority communities.
Since this program began in 1990 we have made grant awards to nearly 2,577 projects totaling $46.6 million.
We are looking to partner with other nonprofit organizations whose programs respond to the strategic priorities identified in our hospitals' Community Health Assessments or Community Benefit Plans. Grant funds are to be used to provide services to underserved populations.
- Grant funds are awarded up to $75,000 (due to availability of funds hospitals may reduce this limit).
- Applicants must strictly adhere to the grant guidelines.
- Proposals must identify the type of change expected and how and over what time period progress will be measured.
- Applicant must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization or have a fiscal agent that is a 501(c)(3) organization and capable of administering the project's funds.
- The project/program must be a response to the health priorities identified in the local Dignity Health hospital's community assessment or Community Benefit Plan.
- The project must involve collaboration with other organizations and/or with a Dignity Health hospital.
