For Community Health Fund
The Community Health Fund (CHF) is an annual grant opportunity that supports efforts to improve health and wellness in Spartanburg County, SC. The CHF is for projects outside of the Foundation’s Early Childhood Development and Healthy Eating | Active Living priority areas.
In 2020, the total funding available CHF grants is not to exceed $200,000. Because of the limited funds available, the CHF grant review process is highly competitive. Furthermore, the Foundation will give highest priority to projects that seek to:
- Support the recommendations of the 2019 Child & Adolescent Behavioral Health Assessment OR
- Improve outcomes in the following Spartanburg County zip codes: 29301, 29303, 29306, 29330, and 29372. These geographic areas have been traditionally under-resourced and; therefore, continue to be negatively impacted by disproportionately inequitable health outcomes compared to other areas of Spartanburg County. It is due to these inequities, that the Mary Black Foundation seeks to partner with organizations from these priority communities or those that can work with the priority communities to develop solutions.
The challenges that the Foundation is seeking to address are systemic and will not be solved in a one-year grant period; therefore, the Foundation encourages applications for multi-year general operating support. Similarly, the Foundation encourages applicants to think about the policies and systems that are contributing to the poor health outcomes we seek to change. Applications that address policies, systems, and environments (and not just services or programs) will be prioritized for funding.
