Dignity Health Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center Announce Availability of Community Grants Funding

Dignity Health Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center encourages local nonprofit organizations to submit letters of intent (LOI) for the annual Dignity Health Community Grants program, which earlier this year awarded $114,000 to seven Glendale organizations.

Dignity Health’s Community Grants Program focuses on awarding funds to provide services to underserved populations including the economically poor, women and children, and the mentally or physically disabled.

This year, Dignity Health Glendale Memorial Hospital will award grants to organizations partnering together to respond to needs identified in its most recent community health needs assessment. The top nine health concerns identified include obesity/overweight, mental health, diabetes, alcohol and substance abuse, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, cholesterol, disability and oral health. Grants up to $75,000 will be awarded to qualified nonprofit organizations. Letters of intent must be submitted no later than July 15, 2014.

Grant applicants may download the 2014 LOI form at www.dignityhealth.org/Who_We_Are/Community_Health/STGSS045787 and may submit the LOI to Glendale Memorial Hospital. The community grants selection committee will review all LOIs submitted by July 15.

The Community Grants Program is funded by contributions from Dignity Health member hospitals and supports Glendale Memorial Hospital in its mission to provide compassionate, high quality and affordable health services.
