The California Wellness Foundation
The Foundationís Responsive Grantmaking Program seeks to balance a Foundation-directed approach with responses to unsolicited letters of interest. This approach allows the Foundation to respond to changing circumstances within the nonprofit sector. Funding is awarded to nonprofits that provide direct services in disease prevention, health promotion, and wellness education in California. Priority is given to programs and projects addressing the following issues: diversity in the health professions, environmental health, healthy aging, mental health, teenage pregnancy prevention, violence prevention, womenís health, work and health. The Foundation also responds to timely issues or special projects related to other health issues. While project funding requests are accepted, preference is given to requests for core operating support. Grants are generally not awarded for annual fund drives, building campaigns, major equipment, or biomedical research. Activities that exclusively benefit the members of sectarian or religious organizations are not considered. Some additional information can be found on the Web site.
