Community Grants Program

The Christie Foundation’s community grants program enhances innovative, cutting edge programs, tools, and techniques that further health care education throughout the Christie Clinic region. The Foundation’s goal is to transform communities, services, institutions, and access to health care.

The Foundation supports projects and ideas aimed at communities, individuals, and populations with limited or no access to health care resources as well as those that demonstrate they can leverage additional investment or gifts to help sustain efforts and build broader community support.

Tax-exempt organizations in communities served by Christie entities are eligible to apply. Grants are typically under $5,000. The Christie Foundation Board makes a determination annually regarding the total funds to be allocated to support community grants.

Applications and more information on the Christie Foundation’s grant process can be found here. Grant decisions are expected to be made by December.
