How would you use up to $5,000 to improve patient care, community health or the cost of care? That's the question the Foundation has asked St. Charles caregivers since 2011, and the responses have been outstanding: To date St. Charles Foundation has awarded $580,000 for over 175 projects to caregivers throughout St. Charles Health System.
Caregivers have used mini-grants in ingenious ways. One went towards the purchase of books for parents with sick children. Another provided music in the chemotherapy room. Another grant funded cell phone charging stations at all four hospitals.
Applications for mini-grants for St. Charles Health System caregivers from St. Charles Foundation are accepted March 1–31 and August 1–31 for grants up to $5,000.
