Grants of up to $50,000 to Illinois, Iowa, Colorado, and Oklahoma nonprofits, schools, and agencies for programs that support innovation and equity in healthcare, efforts to recruit and retain a high-quality healthcare workforce, as well as novel approaches to positively address the social determinants of health.
The following represents guiding principles for TCI's approach to philanthropic support:
- Every person deserves health education and services, especially the most vulnerable members of our communities.
- Health promotion provides opportunities for the development of community and individual capacity.
- Many factors shape health and health outcomes (social determinants of health), putting a premium on prevention and integration of health with other community stakeholders and sectors.
- Active and intentional collaboration with others that share common ground, views, and beliefs.
Program area summary:
This area is encouraged to think creatively and differently regarding issues and opportunities that can bring innovation to the way we all envision health.
Healthcare Workforce Development
TCI provides resources in this funding priority to help educate, recruit, and retain a diverse, high-quality workforce that is geographically distributed and more accessible to vulnerable populations and communities.
Social Determinants of Health / Health Equity
The social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. The social determinants of health can be most responsible for resulting health inequities. TCI believes in advancing health equity and achieving this requires novel approaches to positively address the social determinants of health. The range of personal, social, economic, and environmental factors that influence health status are known as determinants of health. It is the interrelationships among these factors that determine individual and population health. This interrelationship and connection to health is a connection TCI wants to support with their resources.
Please see the Guidelines for the RFP for more details about individual focus areas.
TCI seeks to support projects that are at the intersection of and connect clinical and community-based work; build on collaborations to address underserved populations, and recognize the role of the social determinants of health within the design of project plans and proposal development. TCI funds the following themes or forms of support:
- First-dollar, programmatic funding or seed funding to nonprofit organizations or governmental entities is a powerful contribution TCI can make to positively impact health status.
- This funding can also be positioned to provide core support for critical work of an organization in strong alignment with the funding priorities.
- Expansion or spread of already impactful and successful approaches you are doing to other populations or geography.
- This funding could also be evaluated by a potential applicant to support meaningful capacity building of an organization to better deliver its work or mission that strongly aligns with TCI funding priorities.
