Kaiser Permanente Announces More Than $450,000 in Grants to Local Organizations

Kaiser Permanente in the Marin-Sonoma Area is awarding $487,000 to local non-profit organizations that provide community programs for improved health care access, healthy eating and active living, oral health, mental health services and substance abuse services.

Kaiser Permanente Community Benefit grants are awarded every year to local organizations working on specific programs and projects that align with Kaiser Permanente’s missions and goals resulting from priorities developed from the tri-annual Community Health Needs Assessment.

The Marin-Sonoma grantmaking program supports local non-profit, public health, and human service organizations that improve the health of under-served communities in Marin and Sonoma counties.

This year, Kaiser Permanente has five objectives in its Community Benefit grants program: improve access to health care; oral health services, Healthy Eating Active Living, mental health services and substance abuse services.

“Kaiser Permanente believes that by working together with organizations in our community, we can help create important and sustained change,” says Judy Coffey, RN, senior vice president and area manager for the Marin-Sonoma Area. “We are proud to support work that helps improve the health of the communities we serve.”
