South Bay County Grants Program
Through our local grants program we support programs and organizations that are working to address the health needs of our most vulnerable residents.
Through partnerships with community organizations and government entities, Kaiser Permanente strives to benefit the community by addressing issues and concerns that affect overall community health. These partnerships are built on the sharing of knowledge and resources between Kaiser Permanente and health-related community service organizations. Kaiser Permanente brings a variety of resources to these partnerships: cash grants to support community activities, volunteers, and in-kind donations.
Our grantmaking supports projects addressing:
Goal: Increase access to, and consumption of, fresh fruits and vegetables; decrease calorie consumption (e.g. soda/sugar-sweetened beverages, portion sizes); and increase physical activity in community and institutional settings.
2. Violence and Substance Abuse
Goal: Provide tools and support for children, youth and families to decrease aggressive behavior, inappropriate coping behaviors, poor social relationships and violence.
3. Access to health insurance coverage and health care services
Goal: Increase access to health care services for low-income and uninsured individuals and increase the number of low-income people enrolled in and/or maintaining health insurance coverage.
We are now soliciting electronic applications for our 2013 South Bay Community Benefit Grants Program. We will consider requests for organizations that serve underserved populations in Santa Clara County.
