Applying for Grants

Our Grants

Our Foundation supports two annual grant cycles: one for organizations and one for individuals.

Our organizational grants focus on two themes: Care for the Medically Uninsured/Underinsured and Community Action. The former theme highlights our desire to support physician-led volunteer initiatives that provide free care to uninsured patients and increase access to care for the medically underinsured. The latter theme focuses on funding nonprofit organizations that provide direct care services or target public health issues which impact the health care system and the health and well-being of the community.

Our individual grants, also known as our International Health Studies grants, fund medical student and resident physicians who are pursuing international education that focuses on underserved populations. By subsidizing up to $2,000 of travel expenses, we hope contribute to the development of culturally competent physicians who are prepared to serve both local and international communities with humility and respect.

Foundant – Our Online Grant Management System

In an effort to increase our availability, flexibility and usability, we have implemented Foundant, an online grant management system. Among many benefits we think you'll appreciate within this system are the ability to control organizational contact information, to draft, save and submit online applications, and to upload documents and reports. In implementing this program, we are committing to run all our grants through this system, meaning that you can no longer submit applications, reports or any other forms by email or regular mail.
