2021 Community Grants


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 healthcare services for people in low-income and minority communities. Since 1990 Dignity Health has made 3,600 grant awards totaling $80 million.

Program Overview

Dignity Health’s 2021 Community Grants program continues to focus on collaboration with an emphasis on responding to significant health needs identified in the Community Health Needs Assessment. The goal of the program is to develop strategic partnerships between community-based organizations that link services directly to Dignity Health hospitals, leveraging resources that address priority health issues and utilizing creative strategies that have a direct, positive and lasting impact on the health of disadvantaged individuals and families.

Our Response to the Coronavirus Pandemic

In addition to the Community Grants, and in response to the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic, Dignity Health is also offering the Coronavirus Pandemic Community Benefit Support grants.
