About this funder:



The Healing Trust supports nonprofits that provide health services in Middle Tennessee. We do this by providing grants, retreats, and leadership programs.

Small Grant

Small Grants are $20,000 or less. These grants are for programs that include clear goals, timelines, and measurable health outcomes. Health outcomes show the impact that the program has had on its participants.

The Small Grant application is our shortest application and does not have a preliminary application. However, applicants must speak with a member of the program staff before applying to make sure that the program will fit our interests. Agencies may only have one Small Grant or a regular Transom Grant at any given time.

Areas of Interests

  • Physical Health (Must provide direct clinical services, caregiver support, or health system navigation through the Get Covered TN initiative to apply under physical health)
  • Mental Health
  • Recovery from Alcohol or Drug Addiction
  • Healing from Abuse, Neglect, or Violence

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. 
  • Applying organizations must have sustainable programs that fit into one or more of our areas of interest.

    • Capital projects: purchase, construction, or renovation of facilities

    • Other grant-making organizations
    • Organizations that have discriminatory policies or practices
    • Partisan politics, political lobbying, or electoral campaigns
