This holiday season, we are grateful for our talented and committed Grants Team. They are the unsung heroes behind our client accounts – taking a mission and vision and turning it into a focused, concise and compelling funding request that has the potential to transform an organization’s activities and operations.
Case in point: their 2019 track record with the Health Forward Foundation.
The Health Forward Foundation’s mission is to provide leadership, advocacy and resources in order to eliminate barriers and promote quality health for the uninsured and underserved in their seven-county service area. Their vision is simple – they want healthy people living in healthy communities. For a number of our clients, our grants team identified the synergy early on between their missions and the Health Forward Foundation’s funding goals.
The Health Forward Foundation has three areas of funding priorities – Safety Net, Healthy Communities and Mental Health. They also fund Applicant Defined Grants (based upon an applicant’s determination of need) and Initiatives (finding solutions to complex health-related problems) throughout the year.
Our relentless team of grant writers did an excellent job securing Health Forward Foundation funding for the following clients in 2019:
- Guadalupe Centers – Healthy Communities Grant Recipient
- Welcome House – Mental Health Grant Recipient
- Northland Health Care Access – Applicant Defined Grant Recipient and Safety Net Recipient
- SAVE, Inc. – Mental Health and Applicant Defined Grant Recipient
- Urban Neighborhood Initiative – Healthy Communities Grant Recipient
- Healing House – Healthy Communities Grant Recipient
Congratulations to these organizations on receiving a Health Forward Foundation grant this past year. Grant writing is an art, not a science, and Byrne Pelofsky is so lucky to have such a talented and devoted team of writers in place.
