Grants to Trumbull County, Ohio nonprofits, schools, churches, and agencies for innovative projects in the areas of hospice care and education, the needs of cancer patients and their families, diabetes treatment and prevention, orthopedic care and support, and programs designed to improve the quality of women’s and children’s health.
More details on the specific fund areas are as follows:
- Oncology Fund: This fund is used to support programs or projects that address needs of cancer patients and/or their families.
- Hospice Fund: This fund is used to support programs or projects that promote hospice services, care, or education.
- Rose Hughes Diabetes Fund: This fund is used to support programs or projects that promote diabetes care, including prevention programs and education.
- Orthopedics Fund: This fund is used to support programs or projects that provide education, care and/or support for patients receiving orthopedic care.
- Wean Foundation Fund for Women’s and Children’s Health: The fund is used to support activities designed to improve the quality of women’s and children’s health in Trumbull County, Ohio, with a focus on underserved populations, particularly in the city of Warren. The intent is not to support organizations which have as their mission combating specific diseases or conditions, but rather to address broader health issues such as, for example, infant mortality, low birth weight, access to women’s health care, healthy food, or other priorities identified by Trumbull County in their periodic community health assessments. Acknowledging that the County’s priorities are often aimed at larger societal issues which impact health, the TMHF is permitted to consider grants to address these barriers to health as well, to the extent that they affect women and children.
The fund encourages strategies which engage residents to be active participants in and advocates for their healthy lives. Therefore, grants to support advocacy at the local and state level around policy issues bearing on the target population (such as access to health insurance, etc.) may be considered.
While Trumbull County is the intended service area for distributions from this fund, we encourage openness to collaborative efforts which cross county lines, efforts which can lead to greater efficiencies and impact.
In addition, the Trumbull Memorial Health Foundation gives priority to projects that:
- Address underlying social and economic challenges contributing to poor health outcomes in the communities served, such as poverty, lack of access to healthy foods and absence of parks or recreational centers
- Extend past individual behavior or program related services by modifying policies, systems, and environments to help make healthy options practical and readily available
- Demonstrate collaboration among sectors, including public health, government, education, healthcare, etc.
- Prioritize engagement of residents from the communities served
- Adhere to existing evidence-based best practices or promising practices
- Leverage additional funding as well as community assets
- Provide an established plan for evaluation including measurable outcomes
