Bcbs Massachusetts Foundation
DescriptionThe Foundationís Catalyst Fund supports the efforts of community based health care organizations to strengthen their capacity to expand access to health care in Massachusetts. The Fund provides one-time, non-renewable grants for a 12-month period to help community-based health care organizations strengthen their capacity to expand access to health care in Massachusetts. Examples of activities that could be supported include but are not limited to hiring a grant writer; technology enhancements (automated external defibrillators are not eligible); hosting community meetings to engage stakeholders and constituents; engaging in leadership development opportunities for staff or board members; and the projection of marketing or outreach materials. Requests for other types of capacity-building activities will be considered. Grants will only be made to Massachusetts-based organizations that serve the healthcare needs of uninsured and low-income residents of the state. Grants will not be made to individuals, for-profit entities, or hospitals or to support social service programming. Preference is given to organizations and health centers with limited resources. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
