1889 Foundation provides grants and community leadership for transformative work that improves the health of people and communities in Cambria and Somerset Counties. “Health,” as defined by the World Health Organization, is a “state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

To better clarify our grants process and explain what types of projects we are interested in funding, we have launched a new section of our website. Please visit it for complete details about our grants philosophy, eligibility, and guidelines.
