Eligible Organizations:

To qualify for a Foundation grant, organizational programs must meet four key criteria:

  • Address cardiovascular health issues within the United States and its territories.
  • Recognize and work to address an unmet need related to cardiovascular health in the community.
  • Respond to the urgency around addressing cardiovascular health issues, including cardiovascular disease or conditions contributing to cardiovascular disease.
  • Improve the quality of participants’ and non-professional caregivers’ lives in connection with the services provided and work done.
Foundation grant applications that describe initiatives with clearly defined outcomes and measurable results and processes will be considered for funding. Applicants must demonstrate sustainability plans for the initiative so that the program can continue to improve cardiovascular health and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease after the Foundation grant funds are expended.
