Group Health Foundation
Oct 25, 2019

Community Learning Grants provide funding to improve health equity through projects focused on social determinants of health and community-defined health priorities in Washington state.

Priorities include:

  • Organizations and fiscally-sponsored projects that may be smaller or newer, and that have less access to philanthropy and major donors
  • Culturally-specific, cross-racial, and disability-led groups that are founded by people most impacted and led by the people whom they were created to serve
  • Community-rooted groups with inventive, new, and overlooked ideas for changing systems that undermine opportunity and health

Rural and tribal organizations are the types of groups that are prioritized during this funding round.


Nonprofit organizations and fiscally sponsored groups are eligible to apply.
