Cambria Health Foundation
The Foundation is committed to transforming health care and improving end-of-life care in collaborative and innovative ways. Its Sojourns grants help ensure that palliative care is available to all patients with advanced illness. Sojourns seeks to improve patientsí and family membersí satisfaction with overall care; reduce patientsí pain and suffering; and integrate palliative care with local health care systems through partnerships between hospitals and their communities. The program also seeks to promote sustainable business models for hospital-based palliative care. Implementation grants of between $125,000 to $250,000 are awarded to nonprofit and public hospitals with 100 or more beds that either do not offer a formal palliative care program or have not had an active palliative care program in the past two years. Innovation grants of up to $250,000 are provided to nonprofit and public hospitals that provide palliative care services and seek to close gaps in local health care systems through partnerships with other community organizations. The Foundation awards grants in Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Utah. Letters of inquiry are accepted at any time. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
