Legacy Community Health Fund
Almost $600,000 a year in grants for community programs
The Legacy Health Board of Directors approved a $10-million endowed fund from operating revenue to address major community health issues in 1998. Between 1999 and 2018, as much as $600,000 annually has been spent on community-based projects. To date, we have awarded 50 grants totaling $9 million. Community Fund grant principles were developed with the underlying philosophy of supporting organizations with reputations for innovation and follow-through.
Our focus from the beginning has been the significant health disparities within racial and ethnic communities and addressing the social determinants of health. The Community Health Fund has an invitation-only application process and does not accept unsolicited letters of inquiry or proposals. Community Health Fund grants are aligned with Community Health Needs Assessment priorities.
