Opportunity Fund

Please Note: This program is under review, and we are not currently accepting proposals. We aim to reopen the Fund in the fall of 2019. We apologize for the inconvenience.

We believe that the best strategies to address community health issues often come directly from our communities. Through our Opportunity Fund we’re offering the chance for visionary thinkers to tell us their best ideas with the hope of making them a reality. We aim to foster generative conversations — encouraging community members to share their hopes for a healthier region, while providing guidance and making connections that can help bring their ideas to life. The Opportunity Fund has a rolling deadline, with applications read as they are received.
