Cone Health Foundation Awards $4.6 Million to Nonprofits

Nurse gives flu shotCone Health Foundation announced the commitment of $4,665,114 in grants to 40 different Greensboro-area nonprofit organizations. Some organizations will receive more than one monetary grant and others will receive technical assistance with no monetary grant. 

The awards support agencies working in the Foundation’s four focus areas of grantmaking:  access to health care, adolescent pregnancy prevention, HIV, and substance use/mental health disorders. Some fall outside of these defined categories and support community collaborations. The median award was $94,000 and 40 percent of grant awards were made in the access to care funding area.

“Our grantee partners are remarkable. They quickly pivoted to respond to the pandemic and have prepared as best they can for an uncertain future. Cone Health Foundation has provided more funding flexibility and limited our asks of partners. We believe that’s how we can best support nonprofits, in this challenging time,” said Susan Shumaker, President of Cone Health Foundation.
