Criteria and Application Requirements

The Community Fund for Immigrant Wellness granting group will administer grants from a pooled fund of $200,000 through a tiered system, hoping for a range of applications from various organizations which match the Fund’s Mission and Core Values. The granting group has not placed a pre-set number of applications in each category. Rather, the group will make decisions about the grantee pool as a whole and will select the highest quality applications.

CRITERIA

  • Serve immigrant populations in a community setting
  • Promote wellness through integrative, holistic practices
  • Be located within Southeastern PA including the following six counties: Berks, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia
  • Be from an organization which has either 501(c)(3) status or a fiscal agent

The Community Fund for Immigrant Wellness will be distributing grants in the following amounts:

  • Tier One: Micro-Grants for $1,000 - $5,000 for building the capacity of the organization to deliver a wellness-related program. Examples of possible micro-grants include:
    • Staff training and professional development
    • New technologies or products
    • General operating support to close a funding gap
  • Tier Two: Programmatic Support for up to $30,000 to start a new program or expand an existing program.
  • Tier Three: Support for Collaboration for up to $50,000 to start a new program or expand an existing program which relies on collaboration among two or more organizations/agencies.

Applicants may apply for multiple programs and in all three tiers. While applicants are eligible to receive funding for more than one of their programs and in multiple tiers, please note that the granting group will be taking a cohort approach to their selection process. This means that the granting group will consider the diversity of geographic location and population's served in addition to application quality.
