Operating Grant

Operating Grants provide unrestricted funds for health-focused nonprofits based on the budget of the organization.

2023 REQUEST AMOUNTS

Request amounts must follow the guidelines based on the size of the agency’s budget (operating expenses) for the most current budget year. Grants are awarded for one-year terms. If your organizational budget is less than $35,000, please contact a member of the program team to discuss potential funding. As a private foundation, our contribution beyond a certain budget percentage may tip a 501(c)(3) public charity into a 501(c)(3) private foundation status with the Internal Revenue Service. Learn more here about tipping.
