Foundations and Associations

 

California Wellness Foundation
3 year grants of up to $150K total costs
Deadline: Two-page letter of intent accepted anytime.
Eight topics of interest include:
Healthy Aging
Grants that address the issue of healthy aging are commonly given to organizations that provide clinical preventive services, falls prevention programs, food and nutrition programs and in-home support. Also funded are organizations that support relationships between youth and older adults through activities such as intergenerational volunteering and mentoring. In addition, the Foundation funds agencies that inform policymakers and opinion leaders about healthy aging, as well as organizations that provide leadership development programs for seniors.
Special Projects
Each year, the Foundation sets aside a pool of dollars to respond to emerging issues or health issues outside the eight we have prioritized for funding. The Foundation places an emphasis on grants to support and strengthen safety net providers of health care, help low-income consumers understand and navigate the health care system, and to inform policymakers and opinion leaders about health care issues affecting the underserved. The Foundation has also provided significant funding to organizations providing culturally appropriate health programs for underserved ethnic populations.
