MetroHealth has been committed to caring for all in Greater Cleveland, inside and outside of our hospital walls, for almost 200 years.
We are proud to partner with organizations advancing the health and wealth of our communities in alignment with our mission and vision. In addition to system community health programming, MetroHealth also supports initiatives, programs, and events through event appearances, partnerships, and funding to non-profit organizations throughout the year.
MetroHealth participates in community events such as health fairs and festivals throughout Greater Cleveland in support of our partners connecting with community, advancing health equity, and addressing the social drivers of health.
MetroHealth may be able to provide:
We request a 60-day notice to attend an event. We will consider events with shorter notice. Submitting a request does not guarantee MetroHealth will attend an event. For a variety of reasons, we may not be able to accommodate a request.
Events, programs, and initiatives must align with MetroHealth system priorities and goals to advance health equity and community engagement to be considered for funding. Each year MetroHealth receives more requests than funding availability. Funding should be considered as limited opportunities and not anticipated to be available to support long-term sustainability.
MetroHealth will not support:
The mission of the organization requesting support and its proposed use of funds must align with MetroHealth’s mission and values.
Request must relate to one or more priority areas and illustrate how MetroHealth’s investment will advance the health and wealth of communities:
Priority Health Issues
Additional consideration will be given to events/initiatives/programs that align with MetroHealth’s system priorities and target populations with higher rates of poorer health outcomes.
Current priorities include mother/baby health, addiction and behavioral health, trauma and violence prevention, youth development.
MetroHealth prioritizes partnership opportunities that build long-term relationships with community organizations for sustainable change. There should be opportunities for a mutually beneficial partnership beyond a once-a-year event.
Organizations should consider opportunities to partner with the health system beyond funding opportunities. Where feasible, funded organizations may be requested to partner with relevant MetroHealth programming and activities.
MetroHealth reviews the reasonableness of funding requests for alignment with mission and opportunities for engagement and recognition.
Accountability - Organizations awarded a grant must agree to provide an after event/initiative/project report detailing the use of funds and outcomes of the sponsored activities. MetroHealth will also review the history of funding and outcomes for a requesting organization.
Application submission does not guarantee support. Applications should be submitted well in advance of the start date of your event/initiative/program.
Applications will be reviewed on the following cycle:
|Funding Available Starting
|January 1 - February 29
|March 1 - May 31
|June 1 - August 31
|September 1 - November 30
