Limited-life Total Health Care Foundation announces first round of grants
The Total Health Care Foundation has released its initial round of grants, awarding a total of $1.85 million to nonprofits in Southeast Michigan.
Created late in 2019 as part of the Total Health-Priority Health merger, the limited-life funder is supporting health and efforts to improve the social determinants of health, such as transportation, food and housing.
Last fall, the foundation said it is working with the Children’s Foundation as administrator to award the $25 million in grants by the end of 2023.
The initial grants made to 14 organizations include:
$220,000 to Vista Maria to equip its emergency intake wing for young, female victims of human trafficking
“Each of these organizations is committed to serving their communities in a variety of ways which aligns with what both Total Health Care and Priority Health stand for in terms of addressing the needs of their communities,” said Shannon Wilson, vice president of State Markets East for Priority Health.
