Our grantees are our partners. It is through our relationships with our grantees that our mutual interests in health care are realized. Grants allow the Foundation to fund programs at Spartanburg Regional and within our community that help to address health needs.
The Spartanburg Regional Foundation offers grant assistance to programs that are clearly health-related and fall within the Spartanburg Regional service area.
The Spartanburg Regional Foundation is primarily a hospital foundation and will support projects that are hospital-related and agencies that relieve the hospital. Some funds are available to community projects that are health-related.
Spartanburg Regional places a high priority on the following areas:
- Access to Care
- Primary care for low income individuals/families
- Specialty care for low income individuals/families
- Dental care for low income individuals/families
- Behavioral Health for all populations
- Reduction in infant mortality
- Reduction in health disparities
- Reduction in chronic disease affected by tobacco use
- Obesity reduction (healthy eating / physical activity)
Special consideration will be given to grant applications that enable a program to get started, and shows that it will be self-supporting after the start-up.
Funds are generally not available for endowments, operating expenses of existing programs, and programs not clearly related to health improvement. The Foundation will not make grants to individuals nor will it make loans. Recurring applications may be difficult to fund.
When awarding grants, the Spartanburg Regional Foundation does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national or ethnic origin or disability.
Upon receipt of a grant application, the Foundation staff will review the grant and present it to the Foundation Grants and Allocations Committee for consideration. The Committee will make recommendations to the full Foundation Board based upon funds available and how the grant proposal fits with the Foundation grant guidelines.
In some cases, a grant request may be deferred if the Foundation needs additional time to accumulate the necessary resources.
Community Grant Requests
Healthcare-related grants for community organizations enable the Foundation to improve the health of our residents. Grant applicants should plan to attend a one-hour education session prior to completing an application for a proposed grant.
Internal Grant Requests
To facilitate requests within the hospital system, the following procedure has been established: A department seeking financial assistance should prepare a grant request, then receive endorsement from the Department Director and Vice President of that area. Grant applications will then be reviewed by the Foundation and presented to the Business Development Committee or Administrative Staff for prioritization.
