Healthy for Life Cycle

Healthy for Life Cycle

Our Healthy for Life cycle seeks to support programs that proactively improve health and wellness by fostering transformational change in individual or community behaviors. The ideal grant in this category would impact mind, body and spirit. We provide seed money to innovative, trailblazing programs that will draw other funders as the programs become established. Organizations should view MHF as a limited term source of financial support for such proactive programs.



General Community Core Grants

Our General Community Core cycle supports core organization operating expenses, placing a priority on organizations providing emergency services and assistance, shelter, safety-net health care, children’s services and other crisis based human services. General Community Core grants assist recipients in meeting their stated mission by funding overall organization operations, independent of direct service costs.



Jewish Community Cycle

Our Jewish Community cycle includes grants for health focused grants programs promoting short-term and long-term physical or mental health, programs which foster or maintain a vibrant Jewish community, and core support for organizations in the Jewish Community.



Older Adult Core and Program Grants

Our Older Adult Program Grants includes invited proposals only that seek to convene regional stakeholders addressing the important issues facing older adults who wish to age in community. These issues include housing, care giving, transportation, and social/civic enjoyment.

Our Older Adult Core category supports core operating expenses for organizations that provide programs and services promoting social and civic engagement of older adults and/or programs and services.
