Mini-grants for Caregivers

St. Charles Foundation offers mini-grants of up to $5,000 for caregiver projects that improve patient care, community health or health care costs.

Caregivers throughout St. Charles can apply for mini-grants through St. Charles Foundation

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, and the responses have been outstanding: Since 2011, St. Charles Foundation has awarded $1,000,000+ in mini-grants to support caregiver-driven projects to improve patient care.

Caregivers have used mini-grants in ingenious ways. One went toward 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.

Note: You must be a current employee of St. Charles Health System to apply.

The deadline for minigrants has passed. Please check back for the next application period.
