Community Benefit Grants and Sponsorships
Bozeman Health’s mission is to improve community health and quality of life. We accomplish our mission, in part, by supporting community-based organizations through grants and sponsorships.
We would love to fund every application; however, we have a limited amount of money to distribute each year. Bozeman Health operates on a calendar fiscal year (January to December). Please review definitions, the applicant eligibility and requirements, and evaluation criteria carefully before applying.
About Community Benefit Grants and Sponsorships
The Community Benefit Grants process provides Bozeman Health with an opportunity to respond to requests and partner with eligible organizations whose work is aligned with our Community Benefit priority areas. Bozeman Health strives to support programming, education, access, and equity initiatives through Community Benefit Grants. Bozeman Health is only able to award Community Benefit Grants to organizations exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Grant applications that prioritize the top need identified by the 2020 Community Health Needs Assessments and the 2021-2023 Community Benefit Strategic Plans will be given priority. The current priority areas are:
- Access to Health Care Services,
- Nutrition and Physical Activity,
- Mental Health, and
- Injury and Violence Prevention.
2023 Grants Application
Applications are reviewed on a quarterly basis. The deadline for applications are:
- Quarter 1: March 19, 2023 by 11am
- Quarter 2: June 14, 2023 by 11am
- Quarter 3: September 13, 2023 by 11am
- Quarter 4: December 6, 2023 by 11am
The 2023 grant application includes 17 questions including 10 questions that are scored by the Community Benefit Grants Committee. The 10 questions are weighted based on the level of importance to the committee (such as 20% focused on our Community Health Improvement Plan strategic priority areas, 18% focused on helping us live out our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging commitments, and 10% a program evaluation reporting plan). Organizations awarded 2023 grants will be required to submit a report with program measures, monitoring, and reporting on performance.
