What We Fund
We are committed to the vision of a healthy community with equitable access to health care.
The Jenkins Foundation funds organizations that address health disparities resulting from inequitable social, economic, or environmental conditions. The Foundation’s grantmaking seeks to eliminate barriers that keep individuals from accessing primary health, mental health, and substance use disorder services.
In particular, the Jenkins Foundation strives to fund proposals that are:
- Filling gaps to meet the needs of the community
- Meeting individuals where they are with community-based services and organizations
- Increasing access to services in under-resourced communities
Deadline: May 5 and November 5. If the deadline falls on a weekend, proposals will be due by 5 pm the following Monday.
