Foundation is a non-profit foundation that seeks to improve the
health of Iowans, South Dakotans, and their communities. The Foundation
provides support to non-profit organizations and public entities
to help local communities establish or expand health initiatives.
If you have a vision for a healthier community, explore opportunities
with The Wellmark Foundation. Funding is limited to Iowa or South
Dakota-based projects and organizations.
Current funding priorities
of the Foundation focus on prevention with these two specific
areas: 1) childhood obesity prevention and 2) community-based
wellness and prevention.
New in 2013 is a challenge grant program: Matching Assets To Community Health (MATCH).
