The Mary Black Foundation is accepting grant applications for its only grant cycle of 2019. The mission of the Mary Black Foundation is to invest in people and communities for improved health, wellness, and success in Spartanburg County. The Foundation has funds available for grant requests within its two priority areas: Early Childhood Development and Healthy Eating & Active Living. The Foundation seeks proposals that address one of the following:
- Supporting children, prenatal through age five, and their families to increase the number of children who are ready for success in kindergarten.
- Programs, policies, or places that will increase the number of people who are physically active and eat healthy
In addition to the grants available in its two focus areas, the Foundation has funds available for grants through its Community Health Fund (CHF). The CHF is an annual grantmaking opportunity that supports efforts to promote health and wellness, outside of the Foundation’s Early Childhood Development and Healthy Eating & Active Living priority areas.
The grant deadline is 5:00 p.m. on February 22, 2019 for both Community Health Fund applications and for applications for Early Childhood Development and Healthy Eating & Active Living. More information is available under the ‘Apply for a Grant’ section of the website: www.maryblackfoundation.org.
