Benefis Foundation Offers Grants to Improve Health in Great Falls and Region
Have an idea to improve the health of people in our community and region? Benefis Health System Foundation wants to help bring your idea to life through its new Community Grant Contest.
Benefis Foundation, a nonprofit that supports Benefis Health System and various community programs, will award up to $2,500 in grant money to a youth organization and another award up to $2,500 in grant money to an adult organization with project ideas to improve or enhance the health of people in Great Falls and/or the region.
Schools, churches, clubs, youth groups, businesses and other organizations are invited to send their ideas to Benefis Foundation through March 31. Then, a committee made up of Benefis Foundation staff and Board members will select finalists for both the youth and adult categories.
The finalists will be put on the Benefis Foundation’s Facebook page, online at www.facebook.com/benefisfoundation, and people will be invited to vote for their favorites. Voting will last one week. The two ideas that receive the most votes will be awarded the grants in April.
