29 Health and Wellness Focused Non-profit Organizations Based in San Diego and Imperial Counties Receive Unrestricted Funding from AHF
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 26, 2014
Alliance Healthcare Foundation (AHF), a non-profit organization working to advance health and wellness for those in need in San Diego and Imperial Counties, announced today that it will fund 29 local organizations through its Mission Support Grants program with awards totaling $1,050,000.
More than 100 non-profit organizations applied for AHFs Mission Support Grants program. Grant recipients were chosen through a detailed process involving AHFs board of trustees and program committee as well as the community. Of the 29 organizations receiving grants, 20 are located in San Diego County and nine in Imperial County. To be considered in the competitive application process, local organizations were asked to demonstrate past and planned innovations, collaboration with other organizations, and their unique role in improving health and wellness across our region. Mission Support Grants range from $25,000 to $100,000.
We received a record number of applications this year from many worthy organizations, making the selection process quite difficult, said Nancy Sasaki, Executive Director of Alliance Healthcare Foundation. I was especially thrilled to see the continued growth of applicants from Imperial County. Im tremendously proud to work with our Board of Trustees in showing our dedication to providing funding for both San Diego and Imperial Counties.
Ahmed Sahid, President at Somali Family Service, leads one of the organizations that has received previous grants. Somali Family Service is grateful to AHF for its tremendous ongoing support of our work and efforts in improving the lives of East African refugees in San Diego. SFS was granted Mission Support Grants, and through these grants we were able to provide vital health services that the community needs. AHF truly cares about its grantees by investing in them and providing them various trainings and seminars to increase their capacity and effectiveness in serving the underserved.
