Gulf Coast Medical Foundation Grant

In honor of the founders of Gulf Coast Medical Foundation (GCMF), the Grants Committee and the Board of Directors of the foundation will, over the next five years, give priority in making grants to those organizations and projects which:

  • Attempt to attract and retain medical professionals of all types to the GCMF service area.
  • Increase favorable life outcomes for at-risk K-12 students. 

GCMF grants shall be primarily for health, education, human service, civic or cultural purposes, with priority given to health-related projects, according to the following guidelines:

  • Applications will be considered with the Grants Committee having authority to approve and disburse grants of up to $10,000, not to exceed $40,000 annually. Grants exceeding these limits shall be reviewed by the Committee for positive or negative recommendation to the Board of Directors for its consideration.
  • GCMF grants shall be primarily for specific, identifiable projects or purposes, rather than in response to general fund-raising programs by other charitable organizations.
  • The GCMF Grants Committee will have authority to originate and present for recommendation to the full Board pro-active grants conceived by individual committee or board members of the committee or board as a whole.
