Our grantmaking is informed by our five-year plan, Our Plan for Impact, 2013-2018.  The What We Fund section of our website provides an overview of our plan in order that organizations have an understanding of our funding goals and can create their own growth and project plans with this greater knowledge.  We encourage organizations interested in our funding to review our funding areas and goals.

2016 funding opportunities were announced in January.  In this calendar year, applications for new grant projects will be accepted toward our Preventing Injury and Nonprofit Capacity Building goals.  Positive Mental Health and Preventing Injury grantees may also apply for funding to support projects that expand on their current John Rex Endowment grants.

2017 funding opportunities will be announced in May 2017, and our Grant Award Cycles page provides details on our schedule for funding.  It is expected that our funding priorities for 2016 will likely continue in 2017.
