Barton Health Grants: For the health of the community

Provided to the TribuneStudents at Bijou Community School, who participated in last year's Walk-a-thon, reaped the rewards of a Barton Health Grant in 2009.

In an effort to positively impact the health of everyone in our community, the Barton Foundation is offering grants to health-related local programs.

The foundation is increasing the reach of its philanthropy by providing funding to programs and organizations that benefit underserved populations and/or can have the greatest impact on the health of the entire community.

“We will be considering all types of health-related programs such as wellness programs that encourage better nutrition, fitness, and preventive care and those programs aimed at specific populations such as seniors, infants, Latinos and more,” said Kindle Craig, Barton Foundation executive director.

Barton Health Grant proposals will be reviewed by the Barton Community Advisory Committee (CAC) and the final grant recipients will be approved by the Barton Foundation Board of Trustees.

The funding for the Barton Health Grants will be provided by the Barton Foundation. The total grant amount available for 2010 is set at a maximum of $25,000.

Grant proposals will be accepted from April 1 through July 31. Grantees will be notified in September and awards will be given at the Philanthropy Day Celebration on Nov. 5.

Grant proposals can be submitted online at or in person at the Barton Foundation office at 2092 Lake Tahoe Blvd., Suite 600. For more information, call (530) 543-5612.

Denise Sloan Smart is the public information officer for Barton Health.
