Kaiser Permanente awards grants to support Marin and Sonoma county nonprofit organizations

In 2015, Kaiser Permanente donated funds to local nonprofit organizations to improve the health of the communities in Marin and Sonoma counties. Thirty-one nonprofits across the two counties received Kaiser Permanente Community Benefit grant funding totaling more than $500,000.

The Community Benefit program works in partnership with local nonprofits to address important health needs and identify health improvement programs that make a direct impact on the health of families and individuals.

“Our partnership with these organizations provides the kind of collective impact that will improve the health of the communities we serve”, said Judy Coffey, RN, Sr. VP and Area Manager, Marin/Sonoma. “In addition to grant funding, Kaiser Permanente also works side by side with our community partners to share medical research, clinical practices, and the expertise of our physicians and staff.”

Kaiser Permanente Marin/Sonoma grants fund efforts to address some of the most crucial health issues in these counties, including:

  • Improving access to health care coverage, health services and health education
  • Supporting Healthy Eating and Active Living (HEAL) initiatives that help people to eat better and be more physically active as part of daily life
  • Preventing and providing treatment for mental/behavioral health
  • Preventing and treating oral health problems for low-income families without dental insurance in Sonoma County
  • Providing education and treatment to prevent and recover from substance abuse in Marin County

The grants range from $5,000 to $30,000.
