Grants to Virginia nonprofit organizations, local government entities, and religious institutions for strategic planning and effective programming related to health and wellness in northern Culpeper, Rappahannock, and Fauquier Counties. Funding is intended to support planning and programming for existing or new projects that reflect the PATH Foundation's mission, values, and four areas of focus:

  • Access to Health
  • Childhood Wellness
  • Mental Health
  • Senior Services

    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 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. 

    Key Objectives:

    • 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
