Friends of UW Health established a grant program to allow employees to apply for grant money to support initiatives and/or supplies that align with our mission by supporting patients and families of UW Health. Through the grant program funding is provided to UW Health programs and services impacting patient care, patient and family services and equity in health care which are not funded through the normal operational budget. Friends grants approximately $100,000 yearly. Friends encourages grant applications of all sizes and funds grants at their discretion of what is deemed most important. Not all grants meeting the criteria will get funded due to limited funds.
Funding requests must be submitted online by December 1. Applications will be reviewed by the Grants Committee, and you may be contacted for further information. Selected requests will be presented to the Friends of UW Health Executive Committee, Friends of UW Health Board of Directors and UW Health Administration for approval in December. All applicants will be notified of the funding decisions by February 28. Grant funds must be spent by June 30.
