Community Partnership Fund

Adventist HealthCare is committed to identifying and responding to priority health needs and outcomes for the people and communities we serve. The Adventist HealthCare Community Partnership Fund provides funding for organizations whose activities support our mission to improve the health and wellbeing of our community, especially for those that have poor access to care and poor health outcomes.

The Community Partnership Fund provides two types of funding opportunities, programmatic grants (typically ranging from $10,000-$100,000) and event sponsorships.
