What We Fund
At the Foundation for Community Care, we have four different options for funding organizations and individuals.
The first option for funding is Grants. Each year, the Foundation Board gives 5% of our total endowment value to fund healthcare grant needs. The Grant application process opens up every year in early March and closes in late April. Grants are then awarded in May. Check out the Grants section of this page for more information and an application to apply.
The second option for funding is through Scholarships. The Foundation has 3 different healthcare/education scholarships available. They open and close in accordance with our grant applications. Check out the Scholarships section of this page to learn more about each of the scholarships the Foundation offers.
The third option for funding through the Foundation for Community Care is the Medical Emergency Fund. This fund can be applied for year-round and is meant to help anyone in Richland County who has been referred outside of Sidney Health Center for emergency medical assistance.
