As the nation's largest nonprofit, integrated health care system, Kaiser Permanente seeks to make positive contributions to health and wellness in the community as part of our social mission. Kaiser Permanente addresses needs and priorities identified locally which affect overall community health and the health care system. This is accomplished, in part, by supporting partnerships with community-based organizations through our community grants program.
The Kaiser Permanente Riverside and Moreno Valley Community Benefit Grants Program provides opportunities to respond to grant requests from nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and government agencies whose work aligns with our key funding priorities.
Guidelines and application instructions for this funding are provided below. The limited availability of funds restricts our ability to act favorably on many deserving requests. Please review the guidelines carefully to assess the potential fit between your organization's objectives and Kaiser Permanente's funding priorities before submitting a proposal.
The deadline for submitting your grant application is June 1, 2011. Every required document must be submitted by this date. Incomplete applications will not be eligible for funding consideration. All submitted grant proposals and supplemental documents become the property of Kaiser Permanente. You are encouraged to keep copies of all submitted documents for your records.
If you have any questions about Kaiser Permanente's grants program, please contact Cecilia Arias at firstname.lastname@example.org.
