Thank you for your interest in the CaroMont Health Foundation Grants Program.
The CaroMont Health Foundation awards grant funding to community organizations
and CaroMont programs whose initiatives will support its mission of improving
and enhancing the health and wellness of Gaston County.
The application period for fiscal year 2020 closed on Friday, March 22,
2019. Application decisions will be announced in June of 2019.
While the Foundation welcomes applications from any local 501(c)(3) non-profit
organization and CaroMont department, priority is given to direct service
programs that respond to a demonstrated need in our community. Programs
that are not duplicated in our area and those that collaborate with other
local non-profit organizations or CaroMont departments are encouraged
to apply. It is typically the practice of the Grants Committee to not
grant awards to programs requesting funds for salary or building expenses.
To remain able to quickly respond to emergent needs in our community,
funds are reserved for direct service programs whenever possible and multiyear
requests are not generally considered.
As you consider whether to seek grant funding, please use this to help
you determine whether your program is a good fit. We receive a large number
of requests annually, and we have to make difficult decisions when determining
which programs to support. If you have any questions about grants or any
Foundation program, please contact the Foundation office at 704.834.4034
Some examples of our 2019 grant programs include:
Assistance to Cancer Patients
We are proud to support programs offered by Cancer Services of Gaston
County. They are able to support many patients in Gaston County with transportation,
nutrition and medication needs facing a life-changing cancer diagnosis.
Dental Care for Cancer Patients
Some patients are in need of dental work before or after undergoing radiation
treatments for certain head and neck cancers. In fact, treatment may have
to be delayed or cancelled if the dental work is not performed. The Foundation
supports the work of the CaroMont Cancer Center and local dentists to
help patients receive necessary dental care.
Nutrition Support for Students
The CaroMont Health Foundation is proud to support the BackPack Weekend
Food Program, a non-profit organization that provides backpacks filled
with healthy, non-perishable food to children who may otherwise miss meals
during the weekend.
