Fallon/OrNda Community Health Fund Now Accepting Applications

The Foundation is now accepting applications for the Fallon/OrNda Community Health Fund. The purpose of the fund is to advance projects that increase access to healthcare or health promotion services that address the social determinants of health. The Foundation awards approximately $200,000 annually supporting projects that result in:

  • Creating outreach services to vulnerable populations.
  • Removing barriers that otherwise prevent people from accessing and receiving health services. 
  • Ensuring quality access to needed services that result in sustainable coordinated care.
  • Promoting disease prevention and health promotion programming.
  • To be considered, grants may be for operational expenditures such as personnel costs, program expenses, small equipment purchases or physical improvements. Grant requests between $5,000 and $25,000 will be considered. Collaborative efforts will be given a higher priority.
    It is not the intent of the Fund to become a long-term underwriter of operational costs for any one program.

    Applications must be received online by March 30, 2018. For more information, please contact Jonathan Cohen at jcohen@greaterworcester.org or 508-755-0980 with questions or concerns.

    Established in 1996 with an endowment gift of $4 million to Greater Worcester Community Foundation, the Fallon/OrNda Community Health Fund was created as a result of the sale of Saint Vincent Hospital by the Fallon Foundation, Inc. to OrNda Healthcorp.
