About this funder:



Grant Healthcare Foundation

Grant Healthcare Foundation continues the long tradition of Grant Hospital of Chicago, founded in 1883 in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago as “a sanctuary in case of sickness or accident for all persons, without distinction of belief or religious conviction.”

Our mission is to support services of organizations dedicated to improving the health of the people of the Chicago area.

To achieve that mission, the Foundation awards grants in support of the following activities:

  • Direct medical services provided by community organizations, including vision and dental care.
  • Mental health care and services for the treatment of substance use disorders.
  • Comprehensive reproductive care services. 
  • Preventive medical programs.
  • Improved access to physical and behavioral health care for uninsured and vulnerable populations.

Most grants are for a term of one year. Multi- year commitments are rarely made and usually only after a finding that a specific project will not be implemented without such a commitment. Multi-year commitments are subject to annual review and timely receipt of all required reports. 

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

    • Organizations with effective management and a broad base of support in their community.
    • Organizations that have strong collaborations with other like-minded community organizations to leverage their work.
