For Grant Seekers

Application Process

The Medica Foundation is honored to support activities that serve as incubators for ideas, catalysts for systemic change and provide money for community-based programs that address the underlying causes and factors inhibiting optimal health. Organizations are encouraged to contact us to discuss their proposal ideas.

The Medica Foundation sets funding priorities each year. Funding is directed towards programs that demonstrate the potential for measurable improvement in the availability, access and quality of health care in the communities we serve and that support the Foundation's mission and giving guidelines. The entire grantmaking process can take between four and six months.
