What We Do
The John Muir/Mt. Diablo Community Health Fund supports health initiatives that address current and emerging health care needs. To do so, we distribute grants to and partner with the leaders of these initiatives: community-based, nonprofit organizations that provide either high quality, affordable primary, specialty, dental, and behavioral health care or innovative wellness and support programs that contribute to good health.
We define a health initiative as something that increases access to and closes gaps in existing services and is substantial and sustainable, because it includes:
- An innovative vision for change
- A well-crafted implementation strategy
- A professional evaluation
Our Funding Process
Our unique funding process does not start with a proposal. Instead, we engage in a series of discussions to identify visionary leadership, strategies, and key players. Then we tailor a timetable for discussions and actions that lead to formulating and funding a health initiative.
Please read a complete description of our programs and processes. We invite all inquiries, and will quickly schedule a meeting to discuss an organization’s vision, capabilities and strategies for improving the health and wellness of medically uninsured, underinsured and underserved populations.
