The Fast-Track Small Grant is a short-term grant for small, nonprofit organizations that focus on health, wellness, or disease prevention. The funding application was opened on March 1st and the grants were reviewed and awarded on a monthly basis.
The Foundation’s larger Impact Grants applications opened on June 1 and the application is available on the Foundation’s website at www.lewisclarkhealth.org. These grants are designed for applications up to $ 75,000. Preference will be given to applicants committed to long-term visions and projects that address the root causes of health, improve wellbeing, and help prevent disease. Impact Grant applications are due by July 31st.
The Foundation’s Community Advisors review Impact Grant applications and make grant recommendations to the trustee. The trustee will notify the organizations selected for funding prior to November 15th.
Non-profit organizations and government agencies from 13 cities in the three-state service area of the foundation with nine districts were among the small-scale grants approved in June. The inquiries ranged from suicide prevention to a Frisbee golf course project. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations were unable to conduct their usual fundraising drives and asked for financial support for their general operating resources.
