Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation
Grants to USA nonprofits, government entities, and faith-based organizations for programs that improve the health and health care services of vulnerable populations. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to applying. Funding is intended for cutting edge, nursing-driven programs that benefit underserved populations, including the economically disadvantaged, racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQ people, the homeless, rural populations, and other groups that encounter barriers to accessing quality health care services. Proposals with thoughtful and efficient use of resources will be preferred over proposals representing comparable efforts that do not have the same value for the investment.
The mission of the Rita & Alex Hillman Foundation is to improve the lives of patients, families and communities through nursing-driven innovation. To this end, the Foundation cultivates nurse leaders, supports nursing research, and disseminates new models of care that are critical to making the U.S. health care system more patient-centered, accessible, equitable, and affordable. The Foundation seeks bold, evidence-based, patient- and family-centered approaches that challenge conventional strategies, improve health outcomes, lower costs, and show potential for national replicability.
