Cone Health Foundation Awards $4.7 Million to Nonprofits

Cone Health Foundation today announced the commitment of $4,722,296 in grants to thirty-two different Greensboro-area nonprofit organizations, some of which received more than one monetary grant and others of which received 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/AIDS, and substance use/mental health disorders. Some fall outside of these defined categories and support community collaborations.  The median award was $103,158 and 40 percent of grant awards were made in the access to care funding area. View the full grant summary.

“These grants support the fourth year of a strategic plan that calls for Cone Health Foundation to focus on a limited number of measurable goals in each priority area,” said Shumaker.  “Cone Health Foundation remains steadfast in our commitment to partner with organizations that leverage our impact on selected health indicators.”
