Spartanburg Regional Foundation announces availability of $569K in grants

The Spartanburg Regional Foundation will provide $569,000 in health-related grants in 2019 as part of its continuing efforts to improve the health and wellness of communities across the Upstate. These grants are made possible by the financial support of Spartanburg Regional Foundation donors.

The Foundation will evaluate funding opportunities for projects within Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System’s service area, including Spartanburg, Cherokee and Union counties. Priority funding for the 2019 grants program will be to support programs and organizations that expand access to health care for Upstate residents.

“The Foundation’s annual grants program is one of the highlights of our year,” said Kristy Caradori, executive director of the Spartanburg Regional Foundation. “We are proud to support nonprofits and healthcare system initiatives that make our community a healthier place.”

Applying for a grant is a two-step process. Those interested must submit a letter of intent through an online grant portal. Letters of intent will be accepted from Jan. 28 through 5 p.m. on Feb. 19. If the letter of intent is approved, an invitation will be sent to submit a full grant proposal by March 19 at 5 p.m.

An optional training session for community organizations will be offered to help prospective applicants navigate the online application system on Thursday, Jan. 24, at 5:30 p.m., in the Gibbs Cancer Center Auditorium. To register, please contact grants administrator Stacey Dulin Burton at 864-560-6827 or sdulin@srhs.com by Friday, Jan. 18.
