Established in 1992 as the charitable arm of Minnesota-based Medica Health Plans, the Medica Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable grantmaking foundation that supports community-based programs and services. As such, the foundation funds community-based initiatives and programs that support the needs of Medica Health Plans customers and the greater community by removing barriers to healthcare services and improving their health.
To advance this mission, the foundation is inviting applications through its Non-Profit Core Mission Program, which supports small community health organizations in regional and rural areas located outside the Twin Cities metro area. Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded to support health-related programming that is core to the organization's nonprofit mission.
To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit organization located in the regional and rural areas of the Medica service area in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, or Wisconsin. (Minnesota applicants must be located outside the seven-county metro area, which includes Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington counties.)
Applications will be accepted between June 1 and August 24, 2018.
