Anna T. Jeanes Foundation Continues Legacy of Community Building with 2018 Community Grants Program

The Anna T. Jeanes Foundation, which supports Jeanes Hospital, is continuing more than 20 years of strengthening the community with its 2018 Community Grants program.

Grants are awarded annually to provide funding for projects that promote the health and wellness of communities in the hospital’s service areas. Criteria include a project’s merit, community impact, and the availability of funds. The grants will range from $500 to $2,500 each.

"Local organizations are working hard to improve the health and well being of our neighbors," said Elly Reinhardt, chair of the Jeanes Hospital Community Advisory Board. "We are pleased to support these organizations with funding that helps continue this important work."

Applications will be available on October 1, 2017 and are due November 17, 2017. Funds must be used between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018.

Nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply, and must provide a copy of their tax exemption letter from the Internal Revenue Service and a completed W-9 form.

Organizations applying for grants must be located in one of the following zip codes: 19012, 19027, 19111, 19115, 19120, 19149, 19152, 19006, 19046, 19095, 19114, 19116, 19124, 19126, 19135, 19136, and 19154. Projects receiving funding must take place within these zip codes.
