The mission of the 1889 Foundation is to support innovative programs and initiatives that improve and transform the overall health and wellness of our region.
CURRENTLY, UNSOLICITED GRANT PROPOSALS ARE NOT ACCEPTED.
The 1889 Foundation has established collaborative partnerships with other granting agencies to assist us in fulfilling our mission. Those agencies are:
For grants related to health and human services, letters of inquiry should be submitted to United Way of the Laurel Highlands as part of their Community Impact process.
For grants related to the Arts, letters of inquiry should be submitted to Pennsylvania Rural Arts Alliance for application for The 1889 Foundation Creative Health Impact Grants.
Proposals for grants to 1889 Foundation that do not fall within these categories are by invitation only. 1889 Foundation is reviewing its grantmaking process, which will be announced in the coming months.
