Current Funding Opportunities

Dear Friends, Grantees, and Partners:

We are excited to announce the launch of the 2020 Notification of Funding Availability (NOFA) for EmpowerHealth, the Foundation’s capacity building grant program. Supporting capacity building allows the Foundation to support health nonprofit organizations and strengthen the way they provide services and collaborate, so they are better able to sustain high-quality programs, achieve long-term performance, and obtain better results. The complete funding announcement is available in the NOFA listed below. The Foundation is partnering with TCC Group (, a national social impact firm that provides strategic counsel to nonprofit, philanthropic, corporate and governmental clients, to help organizations identify and prioritize organizational areas that would benefit most from additional resource support. TCC Group’s evidence-based organizational assessment instrument, the Core Capacity Assessment Tool (CCAT) will be used throughout the application process by nonprofits who desire to enhance their ability to accurately identify organizational areas that most need strengthening. The application process for EmpowerHealth is two phases and applicants must participate in all activities in order to be eligible to apply for a full online application in June 2020. All organizations must initially complete the online application and submit a Letter of Intent (LOI). Eligible organizations that submit LOIs will have the opportunity to participate in the following activities:

  • Attend one of three Core Capacity Assessment Toolkit (CCAT) orientation webinars
  • Complete the online CCAT to identity organizational areas that need strengthening
  • Obtain assistance from TCC Group to interpret the CCAT results
  • Submit a full application for funding to the Foundation based on the needs identified from the CCAT

Organizations that do not submit the LOI will not be eligible to participate in the CCAT orientation webinars, complete the CCAT, receive individual coaching or apply for a full online application. LOIs are due by Friday, February 28, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. EST.
