The Cleveland-based Saint Luke's Foundation has announced second-quarter grants totaling more than $2.7 million to organizations working in the areas of urban health and well-being, community revitalization, and families.
The largest of the eleven grants was a three-year, $1.5 million award to Neighborhood Progress for the Saint Luke's Point Project Phase III. In addition, the foundation awarded $300,000 to the Care Alliance, $150,000 to the Legal Aid Society of Cleveland, and $100,000 to the Fund for Our Economic Future.
Since the beginning of the year, the foundation has awarded grants tied to mission-driven criteria and outcomes. In accordance with its new policies, it also is awarding larger, longer-duration grants.
"No longer a hospital, [Saint Luke's] stands as a symbol of health where it truly starts," said the foundation's CEO, Denise San Antonio Zeman, "a place where people will live, work, learn, and play that will enhance the quality of their lives and their health."
