Community Giving grants for nonprofit organizations

2022 Community Giving: event sponsorships and general grant requests

CareOregon’s community giving provides support to community partners to recognize the importance of partnership and the need to build capacity in the community.

Grants and sponsorships will prioritize funding support to:

  • Programs that address social determinants of health including food access, housing, social support, and access to care in communities where CareOregon members live.
  • Culturally specific organizations, including disability and LGBTQ+ focused organizations.
  • Programming that includes the use of Traditional Health Workers (THWs) of any type, including Community Health Workers, Doulas, Peer Support Specialists, Peer Wellness Specialists, and Personal Health Navigators.
  • Programming addressing the ongoing impacts of COVID-19; and COVID-19 related emergency operations support.

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 but not required to reach out to CareOregon’s grant program manager to discuss their request prior to submission.

CareOregon efforts to respond to all requests within 90 days.

2023 grant application and priorities will be released by February 1, 2023.

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.
