Grants of up to $10,000 to Minnesota nonprofit organizations to improve healthcare services for residents in eligible locations. Applicants are required to submit an LOI prior to a full grant application. Funding is intended to improve the health, well-being, and medical care of Minnesota residents. Organizations must be located in one of seven counties of the metro area: Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington Counties.

The Mount Sinai Community Foundation’s mission is to improve health, enhance wellbeing, or otherwise advance medical care in the Jewish and larger communities, honoring the history and legacy of the Mount Sinai Hospital.

Grantees may receive funding in the area of: cancer research and education; mental health or cancer treatment; medical ethics and quality assurance; or patient advocacy programs.

Funding Priorities:

  • MSCF seeks to fund innovative programs and/or essential equipment that have a meaningful, direct, and high impact on the target population.
  • MSCF is especially interested in discrete projects that can be identified as MSCF funded efforts. These projects or items may be funded by MSCF funds alone or with a limited number of other funding partners.
  • Applicants with unique grant requests who may be unable to secure funding elsewhere are encouraged to apply.
  • Through the generosity of the Frances & Samuel Finkelstein/Janice Finkelstein Mattison Memorial Fund, one of the grants may receive funding for cancer research or education; medical ethics/patient advocacy programs; or treatment for children, seniors, disabled, or the homeless.
