Our Grantmaking Process

At the Health Foundation for Western & Central New York, we value taking a thoughtful, strategic approach to working with our community partners. At this time, we are not accepting new unsolicited funding requests as we focus on quality stewardship of our current partnerships and initiatives. We will revisit this approach periodically in 2023.

However, we are always receptive to outreach from the community, especially organizations who are aligned with the Health Foundation’s strategic plan and vision and support one or more of our three focus areas: older adults, children ages zero to five who are impacted by poverty, and community health capacity.

If you’re interested in speaking with a member of our program team to discuss a new idea or opportunity to improve the health of our community, please contact us at info@hfwcny.org.
