Applications will be accepted in two categories:

Community health and wellbeing: community-based programs to improve conditions that affect health and well-being (e.g., housing, education, environmental/ neighborhood safety, nutrition, access to care) and; programs that prioritize the social, cultural, and linguistic needs of underserved patients, caregivers and families

Youth STEM education and career readiness: programs to build knowledge and skills in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math among K-12 or undergraduate students

Total contribution: Contributions of up to $25,000 per organization will be provided as a one-time payment to be used over a 12 month period.
