Grant uses

Overview

The Foundation sees integrative medicine as an integrative and holistic approach to wellness. It is a partnership of traditional medicine and practices with complementary therapies. 

The Foundation considers IM projects that:

  • Have “buy-in” from the medical leadership of institutions receiving grants
  • Restrict grants to evidence-based research
  • Have the ability to generate sufficient patients to complete trials in a timely manner
  • Are doing research capable of generating broad public interest and, by extension, attract the participation of other private donors and the National Institute of Health (NIH) 

Preference is given to organizations exhibiting aspects of the following list:

  • Year-round programming
  • Transformational outcomes
  • Total mission alignment, please don’t pull out one small program that might be a fit (exceptions for rural)
  • Direct service organizations
  • Organizations that strongly align with our foundation’s funding priorities
  • Strong leaders, strong financial health
  • Bereavement
  • Pregnancy centers
  • Community centers

Integrative medicine proposals are accepted by invitation only. If you believe your project matches the above listed criteria, you may call the Foundation.
