Our Grantmaking Process

Most Health Foundation grants are awarded through programs we design in partnership with our local communities. Because we value hearing from and being responsive to our community partners outside of this process, we periodically consider unsolicited requests.

We are accepting online submissions for grant funding for 2022 and beyond through our Fluxx grants management portal. Once the proposal is received, our team will thoroughly review your request. As a reminder, submitting a proposal does not guarantee project funding.

When preparing and submitting a proposal, there are some basic guidelines to keep in mind. Your project should be aligned with the Health Foundation’s strategic plan and vision, and support one or more of our three focus areas: older adults, young children impacted by poverty, and community health capacity. The Health Foundation’s vision is a healthy central and western New York where racial and socioeconomic equity are prioritized so all people can reach their full potential and achieve equitable health outcomes.
