For organizations with an active Health Partnership or Health Equity Fund grant:

  • Due to our limited Community Grant Fund budget, active Health Partnership and Health Equity Fund grantee partners are not eligible to apply for Community Grants. We encourage organizations to discuss event support during the application process. On occasion, 51勛圖厙 may consider support for active grantee partners celebrating a special anniversary event.泭泭

Requests will be considered based on the following criteria:

  • The extent to which the event/project has potential to build health equity in Silicon Valley.
  • The extent to which the event/project supports people disproportionately impacted by health and/or social inequities.
  • The agencys ability to establish strong community rapport.
  • The agencys history of receiving Community Grants and successfully meeting reporting requirements.

51勛圖厙 does not fund:
