Thanks to funding from IU Health Foundation and its annual Regional Grants Program, 29 health-related initiatives, valued at $1,051,574, will be piloted across the state in 2022. The program grants financial support to IU Health team members throughout the IU Health system who have innovative ideas on how to improve the health of Indiana residents. Their ideas align with the Foundation’s funding priorities of People, Progress and Partnership, as well as with local priorities. Since the program launched in 2018, nearly $2 million has been invested in team member initiatives.
"It’s exciting to see the impact our donors can have all across Indiana and in their own backyards," said IU Health Foundation President Crystal Hinson Miller, MA, FAHP, CFRE. "With these grants, we bring the full force of philanthropy into communities throughout Indiana."
