Grants are made to non-profit organizations with locations in Middle Tennessee that have been in operation as a 501(c)(3) for at least one year and that operate health-related programs that produce measurable health outcomes or advocate for healthcare access. Applying organizations must also have generated at least $35,000 in revenue (not including in-kind donations) in their previous fiscal year and have operating expenses of less than $20 million. All grant proposals should display and emphasize respect for the dignity of all persons. Applying organizations must have sustainable programs that fit into one or more of our areas of interest:
