Mark Twain Medical Center, through its affiliation with Dignity Health, has announced the opening of the 2018 Dignity Health Community Grants Program.
Each grant program candidate must submit a letter of intent by the June 29 deadline in order to be considered. Applicants must be 501(c) (3) nonprofit organizations or have fiscal agents that are 501(c) (3) organizations and capable of administering the funds; the project or program must be a response to the health priorities identified in the MTMC Community Health Assessment and Community Benefit plan.
The Dignity Health Community Grants Program is designed to support nonprofits that collaborate to address community health needs, particularly those that focus on underserved populations. Therefore, the projects to be funded must involve collaboration with three other local organizations and be linked to Mark Twain Medical Center.
The hospital’s executive leadership team will evaluate the programs to determine which best address the unmet health needs as revealed in Mark Twain Medical Center Community Needs Assessment. The program will award $30,682 in January of 2019.
