Foundation / Corporation
Mt. Sinai Health Care Foundation
Grants to Ohio nonprofit organizations and academic medical centers for programs and initiatives that promote the health and welfare of the Jewish and general communities of Greater Cleveland. Funding is intended for proposals that fall within the following categories: health of the Jewish community, health of the urban community, academic medicine and bioscience, and health policy.
Health of the Jewish Community:
- The Mt. Sinai Health Care Foundation seeks to support efforts to improve the physical and mental health the Jewish community through collaboration with other Jewish agencies on health issues of concern to the Jewish community. The Foundation will support projects that build organizational capacity in those Jewish organizations that address these needs. Foundation-initiated special projects in this area may also be developed.
Health of the Urban Community
- The Foundation is committed to improving the health of Greater Cleveland's most vulnerable individuals and families. To achieve impact in this area, scale is a significant factor. The Foundation seeks to support especially those projects focusing on health promotion and disease prevention that have the potential to access large populations through existing community infrastructure. To optimize impact in large populations, partnering with both public and private funding sources may be appropriate and necessary. Of particular interest are proposals in the areas of health-related early childhood development and health-related aging.
Academic Medicine and Bioscience
- The Foundation seeks to strengthen Cleveland's prominence as a national leader in medical education and biomedical science, perpetuating Mt. Sinai's leadership role in these areas. Emerging collaborations among Cleveland's academic medical centers present opportunities to build organizational capacity and advance progress. The Foundation will work with Cleveland's academic medical community to accomplish these goals.
- Through strategic initiatives in the area of health policy, the Foundation seeks to support projects that maximize the effectiveness of government in meeting its safety-net obligations to the health of at-risk populations, including children, the elderly, and the poor, and the obligations of the Affordable Care Act.
Funding priority will be given to those proposals that fit the Foundation's guidelines and demonstrate the most potential according to the following criteria:
- Evidence of sound design, appropriate budget, well-qualified staff, and a strong implementation plan.
- Clear articulation of plans for continued support of the project beyond the term of a Mt. Sinai Health Care Foundation grant, e.g., earned income, long-term philanthropic support (endowment), support from an organization's core budget, or other means, when applicable.
- Clear description of measurable outcomes and how they will be achieved.
- Potential opportunities for working with other organizations to address issues of common concern specific to the proposed project, when applicable.
- Potential for the Foundation's investment to leverage additional resources for support of the project, when applicable.
- Demonstration of solid fiscal and management practices and governing board oversight.
- Demonstrated board commitment, leadership, engagement, and financial support.
