Health And Social Services
The Albemarle Foundation directs funds to nonprofit organizations who support health and social services. By effectively and efficiently relieving distress in the community - these organizations help individuals and families overcome barriers and achieve their full potential. Many of these organizations focus on one of the five basic areas of human services, which include;
- building healthy communities,
- investing in our youth,
- meeting basic needs,
- strengthening lives and
- striding toward independence.
The Albemarle Foundation directs funds to nonprofit organizations that provide opportunities for community members to build or strengthen their relationships with one another. Our employees represent a diverse variety of cultures and interests which allows The Albemarle Foundation to provide funding to a broad range of organizations and causes.
NOTE: The Community Fund application has two parts. Part one determines basic eligibility, and part two requests additional information on your organization and community. Upon submission of the part one application, the Honnold Foundation is committed to providing you with a response within one month. Eligible applicants will be invited to complete the second part of the application. Competitive applicants should anticipate some discussion and additional materials requests from the HF team during this review period.

Supporting solar energy for nonprofits with BIPOC leadership in the most polluted regions in the United States.
The Honnold Foundation promotes solar energy for a more equitable world. We believe that solar energy access improves lives and reduces environmental impact, and we’re proud to fund organizations all over the world who are making their communities a brighter place.
The Honnold Foundation’s Community Fund supports solar PV installations for community-based nonprofits with Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) leadership in the most polluted places in the United States. By supporting solar for a wide range of nonprofits whose work addresses local needs, the Community Fund reduces carbon footprints and lowers power bills, allowing organizations to spend more of their budget on the essential services they provide to their communities.
Community Fund grant recipients will receive funding for the installation of a solar PV system on or near their building. While the Honnold Foundation is not a solar installer, our partner Amicus Solar Cooperative will be supporting grantees through the installation process via their nationwide membership of values-driven solar companies.

Note: Prior to submitting a grant, an organization must contact the Foundation and arrange a brief meeting to determine the potential eligibility of the request. At this meeting, the Foundation staff will explain the procedure for applying for a grant. This is necessary for each grant request. All organizations requesting grants are subject to a review process that includes an initial interview with staff, submission of an online application, a possible site visit, and approval by The Memorial Foundation’s Board of Trustees.
The Memorial Foundation was established in April of 1994 with an endowment fund generated from the sale of the assets of Nashville Memorial Hospital in Madison, Tennessee. At that time, members of the hospital’s Board of Directors became members of the Board of Trust of The Memorial Foundation.
The Foundation’s Board of Trustees serve as volunteers, regularly meeting to review grant applications and to make decisions on the allocation of Foundation funds. The Board is led by Board Chair David McKee, M.D., Vice Chair Varina Buntin, and Secretary Alfonzo Alexander. The Foundation’s President is Scott S. Perry.
In keeping with its roots, The Memorial Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life for people through support to nonprofit organizations. The Memorial Foundation responds to diverse community needs, assisting agencies that focus on: Access to Quality Health Care Services, Human & Social Services, Education, Senior Citizen Enrichment Services, Youth and Childhood Development, Substance Abuse Programs, and Community Services.
The Foundation also strives to respond to immediate, critical needs that arise in the community. With assistance from the Foundation, organizations including The Salvation Army, The American Red Cross, Second Harvest Food Bank, and YWCA have received funds.
Whether offering ongoing support or responding in times of crisis, The Memorial Foundation will continue to partner with nonprofit organizations in addressing the needs and improving the quality of life in our community.
Focus for Funding
The Foundation places special emphasis on assisting data-driven, trauma-informed organizations that focus on:
- Access to Quality Health Care Services (e.g., physical & mental health; wellness programs)

- Youth and Childhood Development

- Substance Abuse Recovery

NOTE: For new agencies that are planning on requesting grants over $25K, a LOI (letter of intent) is required as part of the intake process. Following a review of the LOI, the Foundation staff will determine if the agency and request fit the Foundation’s mission and Middle Tennessee Fund strategy and will request an application as needed. LOIs are not required for existing agencies or new agencies requesting grants up to $25K.

Partners For Sacred Places Inc
Supporting Historic Sacred Places
A program of Partners for Sacred Places in collaboration with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the National Fund for Sacred Places provides financial and technical support for community-serving historic houses of worship across America.
What We Offer
The National Fund for Sacred Places provides matching grants of $50,000 to $250,000 to congregations undertaking significant capital projects at historic houses of worship, along with wraparound services including training, technical assistance, and planning support.
What We’re Looking For
The National Fund for Sacred Places assesses applicant eligibility according to the core criteria shown below, while also striving to build a diverse participant pool that reflects a broad range of geographic, cultural, and religious identities.
Historic, Cultural, or Architectural Significance
We are looking for buildings that have historic, cultural, or architectural significance—and sites that have important and relevant stories to tell. Many of our participants are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the state register, or the local register. Your building does not have to be on one of these lists, but eligibility for one or more of these lists is a good benchmark for National Fund eligibility.
As part of the National Trust’s commitment to telling the full American story, we particularly encourage congregations to apply that illuminate a unique or overlooked aspect of American history and that expand our understanding of our shared national heritage. We encourage submissions related to historic sacred places of importance to historically and contemporaneously underrepresented communities including, but not limited to, women, immigrants, Asian Americans, Black Americans, Latinx Americans, Native Americans, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, and LGBTQIA communities.
Successful applicants are able to demonstrate their place in history by answering questions such as:
- Does the building tell a story relevant to our history—either cultural or religious?
- Does the history highlight previously underrecognized communities, stories, or locations?
- How has the building served the community over time? Does the building have a great physical presence in its community due to its location or programming?
- Is the building the work of a notable architect? If so, is it a high-quality example of their body of work?
- Is the building an exceptional example of its architectural style or building technology?
- Does the building embody the congregation’s resilience over time?
We are looking for congregations that are engaged in their communities and that are serving others. Engaged congregations operate and host programming that serves vulnerable, at-risk, and diverse populations; share space with non-affiliated groups and organizations (often at subsidized rates); work with other congregations, faith-based organizations, nonprofit organizations, and/or municipalities; and have a widespread reputation for being a welcoming center of community life.
Project Scope and Need
We fund historic preservation projects addressing urgent repair needs and/or life safety. We also fund projects that increase congregations’ ability to open their buildings to new populations or to serve greater numbers of people. All projects must adhere to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation, which is a universally accepted framework for doing work to older and historic properties.
We prioritize congregations/projects where there is a demonstrated need (meaning that the congregation cannot raise the funds alone) or where it is clear that our grant will have a catalytic effect (meaning that our grant is likely to lead to additional monies being contributed to the project).
Once-in-a-generation capital projects require a great deal of planning. We are looking for applicants that understand their buildings’ needs and that are ready to undertake a capital campaign. National Fund congregations typically have a history of successful capital campaigns, which demonstrate an ability to raise significant funds and complete a project.
Successful congregations come to us with a realistic fundraising goal, which has been generated with the help of qualified preservation professionals and is not too far beyond the congregation’s fundraising capacity.
The National Fund prioritizes healthy, stable congregations so that our investment is truly impactful and lasting. We look for the following, although this is not an exhaustive list of characteristics that indicate healthy congregations: tenured, well-respected clergy; capable lay leadership; stable or growing membership; financial strength and stability; support of the judicatory or governing body, if applicable; and a history of weathering any congregational conflict or trauma with resilience.
National Library of Medicine
The mission of the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) is to advance the progress of medicine and improve the public's health by providing U.S. researchers, health professionals, the public health workforce, educators, and the public with equal access to biomedical and health information resources and data.
The Innovation Impact Award supports new projects that involve creative program improvement and seek to enhance health information outreach. These innovative projects may not fit squarely into the other award categories for Region 2. However, projects awarded in this category will still align with our larger funding objectives of enhancing the community’s access to health information resources, improving defined health literacy skills, and building community members’ confidence to make informed decisions regarding their health. The approach to these projects may be unique but will have the potential to make a large impact from their distinctive project design.
Potential Project Ideas
- Purchase software or hardware to improve operations in community organizations, health service organizations, libraries, or academic institutions in order to serve their constituents better.
- Pilot a reading group using the materials from the NNLM Reading Club about a prevalent health topic.
- Develop a more accessible and/or culturally inclusive collection of materials (ex: Spanish language, books by diverse authors, graphic novels about health issues, large print books).
- Form a mentoring group and schedule a professional development week for young people related to health issue. This program could integrate an educational component. Recruit adult mentors to support the program.

Ms. Foundation For Women
Ms. Foundation for Women
The mission of the Ms. Foundation for Women is to build women’s collective power in the U.S. to advance equity and justice for all. We achieve our mission by investing in, and strengthening, the capacity of women-led movements to advance meaningful social, cultural and economic change in the lives of women. Ms. has six grantmaking initiatives, one of which is the Birth Justice Initiative.
Birth Justice Initiative
Our Birth Justice Initiative aims to:
- advance equitable birth outcomes and experiences;
- strengthen the capacity, organizational infrastructure, and financial stability of grassroots Black, Indigenous and women of color-led birth justice organizations; and
- expand the frame of birth justice to support intersectional movements and strategies that recognize the full spectrum of experiences and identities in birthing, parenting, and family building.
We believe that Black, Indigenous, and women of color (including trans women and non-binary people) are key experts and should be decision-makers in shaping policy and culture change around birth justice. By investing directly into organizations led by and for women and girls of color, we are ensuring that the movement to address racial based disparities in healthcare, including birth outcomes and experiences, is led by those who are impacted most. Strengthening the collective power of communities of color is critical to addressing the root causes of these disparities and advancing birth justice for all.
The U.S. has one of the highest maternal mortality rates of all developed nations and Black women die at three to four times the rate of white women in birth – one of the widest racial disparities in women’s health. Systemic racism, implicit bias, and anti-Blackness all contribute to the significant disparities in birth outcomes among Black, Indigenous and birthing people of color. Moreover, the spectrum of intersectional issues that comprise birth justice and the ability to have children and parent with dignity, are not only limited to the birth process.
As such, the Ms. Foundation’s Birth Justice Initiative invests in organizations who represent the full spectrum of birth experiences including–but not limited to–preconception health, mental health and wellness, infertility, abortion access and abortion care, comprehensive sex and sexuality education, non-racist culturally affirming and gender expansive healthcare, access to birth workers of color, access to lactation support and services, postpartum health and wellness, grief and loss care and support, and sexual assault prevention and survivor support services. Organizations supported collectively utilize a range of movement building strategies to advance birth justice—such as narrative change, policy and systems change, advocacy, leadership development, direct service among others. And finally, they work at the intersection of birth justice and other movements, such as disability justice, youth justice, LGBTQIA+ justice, environmental justice, economic justice, and criminal legal reform.
During this cycle, Ms. will provide one-time grants ranging from $50,000 to $100,000 to selected organizations not currently receiving funding from Ms.’ Birth Justice Initiative. The grant period will comprise two years.
