The Wellmark Foundation is a non-profit organization 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.

The 2015 funding focus of the Foundation is wellness and prevention initiatives that are designed to improve the health of a community, and will result in a lasting footprint where we live, work and play.

Two grant opportunities will be available in 2015 that support healthier communities across Iowa and South Dakota:

  • Healthy Communities Small Grant Program
  • Matching Assets to Community Health (MATCH) Grant Program

Check back after Dec. 1, 2014, for information on these two grant programs.

The 2014 grant cycles have ended for the year. Information on the 2015 grant programs will be available after Dec. 1, 2014.
