2023 Community Giving: Event Sponsorships and General Grant Requests

In line with CareOregon's mission to inspire and partner to create quality and equity in individual and community health, the objectives of CareOregon’s community giving grant and event sponsorship programs are to:

  • Address priority social needs in the communities where our members live
  • Build CareOregon partnership with CBOs addressing social needs in the community
  • Increase collaboration between CBO partners to improve access to care and reduce health disparities

In 2023, our community giving will focus on the following:

  • Food support
  • Housing support
  • Utilities and Climate support
  • Social Support
  • Community Event Sponsorships

We review and consider all applications in these areas but will be prioritizing funding requests for

  • Culturally and linguistically specific organizations
  • Programs staffed by Traditional Health Workers (THWs), including Community Health Workers, Peer Support Specialists, and other types of THWs.

Programming and events supported by CareOregon may not exclude people or treat them differently because of age, disability, gender identity, marital status, national origin, race, religion, color, sex or sexual orientation.

Funding requests do not have a dollar limit. Sponsorships average $1,000 - $2,500 and Grants average $10,000 - $25,000. Organizations seeking funding at levels greater than $25,000 are encouraged to reach out to CareOregon’s grant program manager at communitygivinggrants@careoregon.org to discuss their request prior to submission.

CareOregon efforts to respond to all requests within 90 days.

For more than two decades, CareOregon Community Giving has worked to improve access to health care and other resources for both CareOregon members and non-members. That’s why our Community Giving Program has contributed more than $20 million in the last 10 years to increase access to food, housing, education and more. It’s also why we sponsor local events — to support the partners in our area that are working to build stronger, more equitable communities. It’s something we call the CareOregon Effect.
