Grants to Tri-Cities Area, Virginia nonprofits, community-based organizations and government agencies for projects that improve the quality of life and health of the local community. LOIs are due by February 1. Funding is intended to support projects in three priority areas, education, health and health care, and quality of life as it pertains to health.

Priority Areas

Health and Health Care:
The Foundation's goal is for people in the Tri-Cities area to have access to the quality health care providers, medical treatment, and the knowledge they need to be well. The Foundation believes that good health and healthcare are critical to the future of the region. Therefore, it supports activities and organizations that provide or promote access to medical, dental and behavioral health care, medication, treatment, health screening, quality of care improvements, and prevention and wellness education.

Quality of Life:
The Foundation's goal is to create a healthy, productive, safe, and vibrant community. The Foundation believes that quality of life as it pertains to health is an important factor in the health, well-being, and future of the region. Therefore, it supports activities and organizations that address needs in human service areas that are pertinent to good health such as youth development, senior issues, domestic violence, patient and family support services, and disaster relief.

The Foundation's goals are to improve the educational standards and opportunities in the Tri-Cities area. The Foundation believes that investing in education today, particularly for youth, will improve their health and quality of life. Therefore, it supports programs, activities and organizations that promote and enhance pre-kindergarten, K-12 and special education initiatives, as well as adult education, medical literacy, and nonprofit organizational sustainability.
