For Early Childhood Development, Connect & Healthy Eating | Active Living
In 2020, the Foundation’s grantmaking will give highest priority to projects that seek to 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.
To apply for funding for the Early Childhood Development or Healthy Eating | Active Living priority areas, you must complete one of the following applications.
The grant deadline is 5:00 p.m. on April 30, 2020. If you have any questions about the applications or the application process, please contact Amy Page or call 864-573-9500.
