What type of grant applications will be considered when applying for a grant through the Randolph Health Community Foundation?
The Randolph Health Community Foundation makes grants which will engage volunteers and organizations to motivate our community to make healthy lifestyle choices. Our priorities are programs which support at least one of the following focus areas:
- Randolph Health: Projects that support the mission of Randolph Health and its efforts to provide quality healthcare.
- Nutrition: Projects that benefit nutrition in the areas of education, training and research.
- Physical fitness: Promotion of healthy living through programs that initiate, expand and improve physical fitness.
- Substance abuse: Education and prevention programs that ease the transition of becoming free from the health problems associated with abuse of alcohol, tobacco or illicit drugs.
What is the timeline for grant applications to be completed?
The Randolph Health Community Foundation is honored to have awarded almost $2 million dollars to Randolph County non-profit organizations over the past 22 years to make a difference in the health and wellness of our community and at Randolph Health. As work continues at Randolph Health to secure local health care in our community, the Foundation has made the decision to not only suspend fund raising, but to also suspend the awarding of grants, until a future partner has been identified.
When will organizations find out they were awarded grant funding?
Organizations who receive funding from the Randolph Health Community Foundation will be notified in early January.
