2024 Mission Support-open

Open Request for Grant Applications: 2024 Mission Support


Alliance Healthcare Foundation’s Mission Support funding program provides multi-year (3 years), unrestricted, core operating support to nonprofit organizations located in San Diego and serving our San Diego community.

Funding ranges are from $25,000 to $100,000 per recipient annually for up to three years, with the average award ranging from $25,000 – $50,000 per year. Organizations may use the funds in a way that best meets the most pressing needs of the people they serve. The total Mission Support grant funding is $900,000 per year with a total of $2.7 million over three years.

Alliance Healthcare Foundation’s mission is to advance health and wellness for vulnerable populations in San Diego through a health equity lens. We prioritize our Mission Support grant funding in communities with the greatest social and health inequities and with grantee partners whose efforts are led or informed by the communities they serve. With this intent, we will be grounded in racial disparity data through our grant and decision-making practices.
