Trinity Health Foundation's

Grant Initiatives

Trinity Health Foundation of East Tennessee will seek proposals in five areas for the 2022 Health Initiatives in both a Small Grants Division (nonprofit organizations with less than $1.5 million in annual revenue) and Large Grants Division. The Small Grants Division Phase I “Planning Grant” selected proposals are awarded a maximum of $5,000 and are eligible to compete for a Phase II “Implementation Grant” of up to $50,000. The Large Grants Division Phase I “Planning Grant” selected proposals are awarded a maximum of $15,000 and are eligible to compete for a Phase II “Implementation Grant” of up to $150,000.

Applying organizations are only permitted to submit proposals for one Initiative. Please carefully select the Initiative that is the best representation of your project. Phase I “Planning Grants” proposals are submitted electronically via this website. An individual organization is limited to only one application as the lead proposing organization in a given year. However, an organization can be a supporting collaborator on as many proposals as they desire to submit.

2022 Initiatives

Physical & Behavioral Healthy Life Choices

Projects that will motivate, encourage, educate, and transform the daily health choices made by our region’s residents by encouraging positive choices or diminishing negative ones. Trinity seeks projects that will measurably impact the regional health choices over the long term.

Neighborhood & Community Strengthening

Trinity seeks partners that can implement programs that will measurably strengthen neighborhoods in our community. We seek creative proposals drawn from experience, other cities, or innovative ideas that will measurably support and encourage healthy neighborhood networking.

Youth Violence Prevention and Human Trafficking

Trinity seeks efforts to reduce youth violence as measured in reduced injuries, deaths, and crimes committed by and against our youth, and projects to reduce the prevalence of human trafficking of our youth in our community.

Spiritual Health and Unity of the Community

Trinity seeks projects to engage the community in prayer for the wellbeing of our nation, institutions, communities, and families. The activation of prayer networks or venues that address specific and generic prayer requests in our region will strengthen our community's spiritual health. We seek to invite the Lord into our community publicly and pray for His mercies to be poured out on our region, awakening all to His sovereignty and presence.

Open Topic

Trinity Health Foundation of East Tennessee extends the healing ministry of Jesus by improving the physical, emotional, and spiritual health of our community. We seek great partners to enable transformational projects that become a catalyst for good health in our community.
