Healthcare Foundation 2018 Grants
The Healthcare Foundation makes its grants in December of each year, normally. As of September, 2018, the Foundation has granted more than $700,000 to commitments for the Wildfire Mental Health Collaborative - an initiative of the Healthcare Foundation and many partners to provide free, bilingual mental health services to wildfire survivors.
This year, our other grant making will be announced toward the end of 2018. Check back for more details in early December.

Resource Mapping Project
This project convenes direct service providers to meet each other, learn about each other’s services, needs, gaps, and available resources in order to create greater synergies and efficiency. This project will help regional providers learn more about each other and improve their working relationships in order better to share knowledge and resources. It will also yield insightful information from which a visual map and resource directory listing can be shared with law enforcement, healthcare service providers, funders and more.
Supporting Our Hospital
We are pleased to announce that we finished the $6 million fundraising campaign for technology upgrades to the Healdsburg District Hospital and now are supporting the purchase and installment of the new MRI to serve our community. Thank you to the Kalmanovitz Charitable Foundation for the $3 million dollar match to make this possible.
