Matching Grants

In 2014, approximately $100,000 has been set aside for this purpose. These requests are considered throughout the year in an expedited manner. Every effort is made to conform to the timelines of external funding sources, customarily by bringing the request to the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Foundation Grants Committee and Board.  To submit a proposal, please review the 2014 Matching Grant - Guidelines

Conference Support Grants

Funds for the 2014 fiscal year have been expended. Please check back January 1 for information on our 2015 grant cycle.

The Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky has the capacity to make funds available to nonprofit organizations or coalitions of such organizations for the conduct of conferences, seminars or symposia that are aligned with its mission and focus areas.  In 2014, each such grant generally may not exceed $3,000.  These requests are considered throughout the year in an expedited manner. Proposals for conference support should be submitted at least two (2) months in advance of the event for which funding is being requested, however, once funds are expended for the 2014 grant cycle, the application process will close.

Conference support proposals can be submitted by filling out our online application. Please review our 2014 Conference Support Guidelines prior to beginning the application.
