Funding Priorities

  1. Responsive Grantmaking: The Foundation considers funding requests that address programmatic or operating needs, organizational capacity building, and initiatives related to improving access to quality health care.

    Proposals should address the following JPWF outcomes:

    ACCESS — Improved access to high quality physical, oral and mental health services for women and children in low-income and under-resourced communities to achieve health equity.

    HEALTHY BEHAVIORS — Women and children in low-income and under-resourced communities practice healthy behaviors to improve modifiable risk factors for physical, oral and mental health outcomes.

    CAPACITY — Nonprofits serving women and children in low-income and under-resourced communities have increased capacity to provide access to high quality physical, oral and mental health services.

    INTEGRATED CARE — Increased coordination of behavioral health services in the primary care and school-based settings.

    Organizations should be prepared to 1) produce measurable results with the funding being requested, 2) define groups who will benefit from services proposed, and 3) explain how the defined groups will benefit in quantifiable terms.

  2. Collaboration: The Foundation may periodically engage in collaborative activities to share collective impact on a specific issue. At the Foundation's discretion, it will seek to collaborate with other funding partners to strategically align resources with others who share the Foundation's commitment to improving health and expanding access to healthcare in the community. From time to time, the Foundation may consider supporting projects that include focused advocacy efforts and/or other strategies that attempt to address systemic challenges as part or all of a collaborative effort.
