Grants to Salem County, New Jersey nonprofits, government agencies, public schools, and faith-based organizations for projects or services that benefit the community. An LOI is due January 2, 2018. Areas of interest include access to healthcare, preventative care, and career opportunities. Funding may be used for planning new projects, implementing new services, or the expansion of existing services.

Funding areas of interest include the following:

- Improving Access to Health Care
Proposals that permit broad segments of the population, especially underserved groups such as the poor and migrant workers, better access to primary and specialty medical services, including dental care and behavioral healthcare, are encouraged. Improved transportation systems for patients, support services for caregivers and advocacy initiatives to increase public and private funding to meet local healthcare needs are examples of projects designed to improve access.

- Preventive Care
Increasing the availability and utilization of proven techniques for the prevention of accidents, injury and illness are a Foundation interest. Examples of such programs include immunizations, screenings and wellness and fitness programs.

- Career Opportunities
Efforts to promote the recruitment, education, and retention of skilled healthcare professionals in Salem County are favored. While the Foundation does not provide direct grants or scholarships to individuals, scholarship and loan programs towards this end, especially through Salem County post-secondary institutions are an area of interest. Programs that offer career training in healthcare professions where a critical shortage of trained personnel can be documented are encouraged.
