MOUNT PLEASANT — Henry County Health Center Foundation welcomes applicants for the 2024 Foundation Grant Program. The HCHC Foundation seeks to deploy financial resources to groups and organizations focused on a healthier future for Henry County Communities. The grant opportunities have doubled this year to $20,000, an intentional strategy to bring an increased impact to awardees.

The Foundation will fund projects in six health related priority areas: STEM, Health Education, Health Programming, Workforce Development, Workforce Recruitment, and Capacity Building.

Those seeking funds should submit letters of intent to HCHC Foundation by Aug. 15, 2024. Letters of intent should include organization information, project information and dollar amount requested.

If the Foundation determines the program or project meets eligibility requirements, the applicant will receive an invitation to submit a full grant application. Full applications are due Sept. 30, 2024.

The HCHC Foundation remains a leading steward of financial resources focused on the future of healthcare and quality of life in our Henry County communities.

“The mission of the grant program is to expand opportunities for growth, and the previous grants awarded have been a catalyst for positive impact in the area,” HCHC Foundation Director Savannah Collins said. “We look forward to awarding recipients with the funding to jumpstart their initiatives and bring their visions to life.”

Consideration for funding will be given to proposals which closely align with the Foundation’s mission, have the potential to achieve both the objectives of the applicant organization and program goals of the Foundation, and have the potential for long-term impact and sustainability in the community.
