51Թ Awards Over $450,000 in Grants to Build Health Equity for Youth, Individuals, and Older Adults in Santa Clara County.

San Jose, CA  – On March 27, 2024, 51Թ’s Board of Trustees approved four new grants totaling $467,500. The grants are part of quarter three of 51Թ’s fiscal year 2023-2024 $2.3 million grantmaking budget, supporting community organizations and public agencies aligned with 51Թ’s mission of building health equity in Silicon Valley. 

Three Health Partnership Fund grants have been awarded: two in alignment with the Supportive Housing focus area to Bill Wilson Center and Mosaic America; one to Asian Americans for Community Involvement (AACI) aligned with the Chronic Disease focus area. Fostering Promise received a grant aligned with the Health Equity Fund.

Together, the approved grants aim to improve health in our community by integrating wellness and nutrition services into senior and youth transitional housing; strengthening nonprofit organizational capacity for advocacy; and improving access to HIV care for at-risk community members.
