Grants of up to $55,000 to Southern West Virginia nonprofit organizations for physical and mental health initiatives that will improve the well-being of local residents. Eligible programs include abuse prevention programs, programs for the elderly and underprivileged, vaccination services, substance abuse prevention and treatment programs, women’s health services, and health and wellness activities, and promote the adoption of health policies that will address the unmet health needs of West Virginians in its service area.
The Logan Healthcare Foundation supports innovative efforts and original projects that offer far-reaching gains and widespread lasting results with explicit, measurable, and identifiable needs that contribute to the community's overall healthy well-being. Grant Applicants will be expected to quantify the healthy results expected, how long they are expected to last and how the project is expected to sustain itself over time. The Logan Healthcare Foundation will look to see if your organization has multiple funders supporting any particular project or program.
The Foundation is restricted to the geographic service area formerly served by the Logan General Hospital and the residents of Logan, Boone, Lincoln, Mingo, and Wyoming counties in southern West Virginia. Further, the Foundation will generally apportion grants in the service area in accordance with the approximate proportion of services utilized by a particular area with the former Logan General Hospital.
The Foundation will ask applicants to describe explicitly how their proposals are responsive, including, by way of example:
- The target population for the grant;
- The specific community needs the grant is attempting to address;
- The activities the grant will enable; and
- The results that are expected, and
- The methods that will be utilized in quantifying the expected results.
