As a celebration of the global Giving Tuesday movement, Priority Health announced today its next round of Total Health Care Foundation (THCF) grants, totaling more than $965,000.
The seven grant recipients share Priority Health’s goal of improving the lives of Detroit and Southeast Michigan residents by addressing the social determinants of health (SDoH), such as food and housing shortages, economic stability and physical/mental health issues. In addition to the THCF grants, Priority Health is investing an additional $20,000 during Priority Health for Good Giving Week. The grants will be distributed to four nonprofits across Michigan that help support maternal and infant health and behavioral health.
Priority Health for Good is Priority Health’s promise to improve health equity through advocacy, employee citizenship and community investment. To reinforce this promise and involve its team members, Priority Health for Good Giving Week is returning for a third year; it began November 28 and runs through December 2. Employees are participating across the state and collecting books for infants and toddlers in partnership with Reach out and Read Michigan.
Formed as part of the merger agreement between Priority Health and Total Health Care, the Total Health Care Foundation has committed to providing millions of dollars’ worth of grants over the next few years to support organizations dedicated to improving the lives of individuals they serve.
“In honor of Priority Health for Good Giving Week, Priority Health and the Total Health Care Foundation are proud to invest in these organizations so they can strengthen their public services and initiatives that contribute to overall good health,” said Shannon Wilson, vice president of population health and health equity at Priority Health and executive director of the Total Health Care Foundation. “We cannot wait to see what amazing things these organizations are able to achieve through these contributions to their causes.”back to blog
