Community Promise Grants

Hamot Health Foundation is excited to announce the return of our Community Promise Grants. 

In 2021, we will award a total of $250,000 in community grants as part of our promise to lead the way to better health in the Erie region. Any organization is welcome to apply; however, priority will be given to 501(c)3 nonprofit entities. Organizations are encouraged to submit requests not exceeding $25,000, however exceptions will be considered on a case by case basis. 

Proposals should demonstrate solutions designed to improve health and/or increase self-sufficiency in Erie County, and should align with at least one of Hamot Health Foundation’s four areas of focus:

  • Clinical Excellence
  • Community Health 
  • Continuing Education 
  • Cutting-Edge Research

All proposals must include goals and anticipated outcome measurements related to the work.
