Grant Application Process
The Foundation awards grants for health-related projects at Memorial Medical Center and to not-for-profit community organizations in three areas: patient care, education and research.
The Foundation awards grants to central Illinois organizations with 501(c)(3) classifications, which are in communities served by Memorial Health System. It does not award grants to individuals.
Providing the highest quality patient care is a priority for Memorial Health System. The Foundation supports advances in patient care related services and acquisition of equipment to help ensure the best possible health care is provided.
Education plays an integral role in healthcare. Memorial is committed to providing heathcare education by supporting and advancing career development. The Foundation awards grants for educational seminars, conferences, research projects and materials that further educate our workforce to provide for the healthcare needs of our community. Grants are also provided for health-related education for patients, their families and others in our community.
The Foundation has a long history of supporting medical research projects that explore new advances in medicine and enhance patient care. Research projects involving humans or animals must include a copy of the Institutional Review Board approval together with any other pertinent authorizations.
