Areas of Interest


We encourage initiatives that;

  • improve lives through better health care by supporting organizations engaged in disease prevention, treatment and patient education; 
  • enrich lives through healthier communities by promoting health and human services to those populations in need; and 
  • empower lives through better health education by improving access to comprehensive and accurate health educational resources and learning opportunities.

HWFPC will accept proposals for new as well as existing projects that fit the Foundation’s standard funding objectives and may be awarded to any not-for-profit organization for health and human service programs benefitting populations in Pike County, IL.

HWFPC prefers not to be the sole funder of any single organization or program; however, they will consider supporting new activities that show promise for broader support.  Grants are typically awarded for one year, but the Foundation may consider a multi-year commitment within a single funding cycle to a specific program, if worthy.  Applicants may apply for continued support of a project previously funded by HWFPC.
