Foundation / Corporation
Grants to Virginia nonprofit organizations and government agencies for health and wellness services in Rappahannock, Fauquier, and northern Culpeper Counties. Funding is intended to support planning and programming for new or existing long-term projects in the areas of childhood wellness, access to health, senior services, and mental health.
The PATH Foundation recognizes that funding for programs and planning is very important to nonprofits. Careful strategic planning, board cultivation and the uninterrupted running of core organizational activities are essential to the success of thriving community institutions. The Foundation’s Program and Planning Grants are awarded for new or existing projects related to one or more of the Foundation’s four areas of focus.
- Provide financial support for effective and essential programs for nonprofits
- Encourage nonprofit boards and staff to engage in capacity building and leadership cultivation
- Facilitate critical, long-range strategic planning
Organizations and their proposals must be engaged in addressing one or more of these specific areas. Funding is given greater consideration when the application demonstrates the intersection of four areas: Need, opportunity, potential impact and collaboration. The PATH Foundation strongly encourages applicants to base their requests on demonstrated project design, rather than the allowable funding maximum.
