Trinity Health Foundation of East Tennessee held a luncheon on October 30 to award over $700,000 in grants to five community non-profit organizations. The Phase II recipients are:

Breakthrough Corporation
Compassion Coalition
Emerald Youth Foundation
InterFaith Health Clinic
University of Tennessee Medical Center Department of Pastoral Care

These Phase II grants will fund initiatives from their Phase I planning and research projects. In April, 120 non-profit organizations submitted Phase I proposals addressing five 2013 grant initiative topics. From these, 16 winners were awarded more than $200,000 for Phase I project planning efforts. After planning and research, in-depth Phase II proposals were submitted, and the above five Phase II winners were selected.
