Baptist Healing Trust: Advocacy Grant

Advocacy means problem-solving. These grants are for nonprofits that want to solve policy or program issues that will help Middle Tennesseans get healthier. We give them to nonprofits that focus on either increasing access to health services or preventing childhood trauma.

Two types of Advocacy Grants:

  • Multi-year Advocacy Grants provide unrestricted funds for nonprofits with a well-developed advocacy plan. Recipients of these funds are committed to advocacy and to solving problems that affect many people because of a broken system.
  • Capacity-Building Grants provide funds for nonprofits to improve their agencies before beginning advocacy work. These funds can be used for strategic planning and will prepare an agency to apply for a future multi-year grant. 

Advocacy Grant applicants are required to attend an Advocacy Workshop before applying.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Grants are made to non-profit organizations with locations in Middle Tennessee that have been in operation as a 501(c)(3) for at least one year and that operate health related programs that produce measurable health outcomes or advocate for healthcare access.
  • Applying organizations must also have generated at least $35,000 in revenue (not including in-kind donations) in their previous fiscal year and have operating expenses less than $20 million.
  • All grant proposals should display and emphasize respect for the dignity of all persons. 


  • The Trust does not fund:
    • Capital projects: purchase, construction, or renovation of facilities
    • Individuals and fraternal organizations
    • Other grant-making organizations
    • Organizations that have discriminatory policies or practices
    • Partisan politics, political lobbying, or electoral campaigns
    • Single disease, research-oriented organizations
    • Startup organizations
