Grants ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 to Worcester County, Massachusetts nonprofit organizations for health-related projects for underserved populations. Priority will be given to collaborative projects. Funding is intended for projects that increase access to medical care and services and address the social determinants of health.

The Foundation is especially interested in projects that:
- Create outreach services to vulnerable populations.
- Remove barriers that prevent people from accessing and receiving services.
- Insure quality access to needed services, and result in sustainable coordinated care.
- Promote public education around disease prevention and health promotion.

Grants may be for operational expenditures such as personnel costs, program expenses, small equipment purchases, or physical improvements.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Grant requests between $5,000 and $25,000 will be considered.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Grants are made only to 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations serving the greater Worcester region (cities and towns of Worcester County). The Foundation prefers to fund organizations that are based in the region; outside organizations must be able to demonstrate the significant role of local partners, advisors, and/or planning steps which garner local understanding and support. Non-incorporated organizations may apply through an established nonprofit that agrees to provide fiscal oversight (a fiscal agent).

Public agencies, municipal departments, and houses of worship are not typically eligible to receive discretionary grants.

It is not the intent of the Fund to become a long-term underwriter of operational costs for any one program.
