Thank you, people and sponsor businesses in Curry County! With your benevolent support and concern for your friends and neighbors along with endowment funds, Curry Health Foundation is able this year to open our annual grant cycle. It was touch and go when our major fundraiser was cancelled, but we have put together enough funds to offer grants to local non-profits and government agencies for promotion and support of health.
Grants fund activities, equipment and programs that directly support the mental and physical health of Curry County residents. This year, our grants can provide up to $2,500 per request with a cap of $5,000 in multiple grants for any one organization. We expect many applicants this year due to the rise in covid 19 cases in the County and the related effects on our most vulnerable populations. The deadline for grant applications is August 31, 2020. Grant recipients are expected to attend a grant awards ceremony on September 30, 2020 after notification by mail.
If your non-profit has been affected by the COVID 19 virus response, we have small grants available for you. Thanks to a generous grant from the Marie Lamfrom Charitable Trust and numerous other donors, we have grants of up to $1,500 to help deal with the impacts of the pandemic.
These are quick response grants. To apply, please send a narrative describing how your organization has been impacted. Include the following in your narrative:
To support Curry Health Network and the delivery of health services throughout Curry County by the soliciting, holding and granting of funds for use toward healthcare needs in our community.
