Funding is intended to support activities that benefit historically marginalized populations, including BIPOC communities, adults and children impacted by poverty, persons with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ persons, rural residents, immigrants/refugees, and older adults.

Responsive Grants are one way the Foundation partners with and support a broad array of communities and organizations as they are best suited to understand their priority needs and to create solutions that improve health. Driven by community voice, Responsive Grants are open, nimble, and responsive to emerging health issues and needs. These grants allow flexibility to test innovative ideas and different approaches to challenges and share what the Foundation and its partners are learning from the projects supported.
Through issuing this Call for Ideas, the Foundation is looking to advance its efforts in innovative, partnered work that reimagines systems, programs, and services to disrupt inequities and rebuild stronger, healthier communities. A central focus of Call for Ideas is to respond to community needs and inequities central to or worsened by the twin pandemics and support the path to rebuilding and reimagining systems in more equitable ways.
The Foundation will fund projects, programs/services, advocacy efforts, and general operational needs to support people and communities that have been historically marginalized and are impacted by health inequities, such as: Communities of color/indigenous communities, children and adults impacted by poverty, persons with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ persons, rural communities, refugees/New Americans, and older adults. (These are a few examples and do not represent a complete list).
