Grants starting at $25,000 to Palm Beach County, Florida nonprofits, government agencies, and schools and universities for programs that improve the health of residents. LOIs are due March 16, 2018. Proposed projects should match the Foundation's vision and mission, as well as their current strategy, outlined below.
Vision and Mission:
- The Foundation's vision is for the people of Palm Beach County to experience a better life through quality health.
- The Foundation's mission is to inspire and fund initiatives that improve the health of local communities.
The Foundation seeks proposals that ensure that people’s health is improved, their education is broadened, and their lives are enhanced. The Foundation specifically focuses on the following three areas:
- Better Engagement in Health - People have the knowledge, resources, and skills needed to make healthy choices and lead healthy lives. Health professionals have the skills and facilities they need to excel in their chose fields.
- Greater Access to Resources for Health - People can see a health provider, enjoy good nutrition, and have access to other resources in an environment that supports their optimal health. Neighborhoods have quality health providers and facilities.
- Stronger Connections in the Health System - Stakeholders in the health system form new or stronger partnerships to solve problems. Innovation and collaboration is fostered to achieve sustainable results and when projects work, their model is replicated so their success can be shared on a larger scale.

There are no specific dollar amount limitations for Regular Grants but they are usually for more than $25,000.
The duration of a grant varies; most grants last between one and three years, which is why planning for sustainability is so important from the outset.
To be eligible for a Regular Grant, your organization must meet these criteria:
1. Your day-to-day work must be focused on improving the health of people in Palm Beach County.
2. Your proposed project must match the foundation's vision and mission as well as its current strategy.
3. You must be able to measure the impact your program will have and be able to show your results.
Additionally, your organization must be either a nonprofit and tax-exempt under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code (IRC) and defined as a public charity under 509(a) 1, 2, or 3 (types I, II, or a functionally integrated type III); or an accredited school or university; or a unit of government or a public agency -- typically tax-exempt under Section 107(c)(1) or Section 511(a)(2)(B) of the IRC.
At this time, the Foundation does not fund:
- Grants to individuals
- Individual scholarships
- Health research
- Religious organizations for religious purposes
- Operating deficits or retirement of debt
- Political causes, candidates, organizations, or campaigns
- Grants to 509(a)(3), type III supporting organizations that are not “functionally integrated”
Grants are not made to replace government funding.
