Request a Grant Writer

Grants for over $200,000 for nonprofit hospitals to create a quality palliative care program. The foundation’s goal is to implement significant changes to the health care system in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Utah in order to increase access to medical care for those who cannot afford it, and to ensure innovative quality care. The foundation seeks to improve flaws in the health care system.

This grant will be awarded to improve the flaws in the palliative, end of life care. The foundation offers three grants including, Planning grants for hospitals with no formal palliative care program, Innovation grants for hospitals with existing palliative care programs and the Implementation grants for hospitals that develop a vision and plan for a palliative care program.

The Implementation grant is looking to fund a hospital that desires to develop their vision for a palliative program, with evidence of strong clinical leadership, institutional support, and detailed project plans. Hospital-based palliative care programs are vital to relieve suffering, facilitate patient autonomy, support caregivers and family members and address the emotional burden experienced by health care professionals who care for seriously ill patients. Hospitals that first receive a Sojourns Pathway Planning grant and complete the required two-day Palliative Care Leadership Center training will receive special consideration from the foundation for the Implementation grant.
