The Spartanburg Regional Foundation will provide $594,000 in health-related grants in 2018 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 Spartanburg Regional Foundation will evaluate funding opportunities for projects within Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System’s service area, including Spartanburg, Cherokee and Union counties. The priority funding for the 2018 grants program will be designated to programs dedicated to increasing access to health care for Upstate residents.

Applying for a grant is a two-step process. Those interested, must submit a letter of intent through the grant portal, which is reviewed.

If the letter of intent meets the Foundation’s mission, 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 Tuesday, Jan. 23, at 5:30 p.m., in the Gibbs Cancer Center Auditorium.
