Foundation / Corporation
The Duke Endowment
Grants to North Carolina and South Carolina nonprofit hospitals and health organizations to improve health care and health outcomes. Program areas include access to care, disease prevention, and health care quality and safety. The Foundation focuses its grantmaking as follows:
Quality and Safety of Care:
In today’s health care environment, improving quality and safety of care must focus on innovative ways of delivery that are high quality and affordable. Grant requests should aim to improve outcomes for patients and reduce costs.
Examples of the Foundation’s work focused on Quality and Safety of Care, include:
-Emergency Medical Services
-Improving Health Care through Collaboration
Access to Care:
Improving access to health care services improved quality of life and health status for all individuals. Funding community-based networks of care that improve access to primary and specialty care for the low-income, uninsured to have access to coordinated care is a priority.
In addition, consideration will be given to requests focused on:
-Expanding the primary care workforce in under-represented or rural, disadvantaged communities
-Developing new models of workforce training
-Examples of the Foundation’s work focused on Access to Care, include:
-Creating a Network of Care for the Low-Income Uninsured
-Strengthening the Primary Care Workforce
Grant requests that seek opportunities to deploy strategies aimed at preventing chronic disease and improving the health of communities will be considered. Collaborative efforts between health care and public health systems that measurably improve the health of defined populations are encouraged.
Examples of the Foundation’s work focused on Access to Care, include:
-Promoting Healthy Hospitals
-Improving Statewide Health and Wellness
