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 since 2011, and the responses have been outstanding: To-date St. Charles Foundation has awarded $860,162 for projects to caregivers throughout St. Charles Health System.

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 application period for mini-grants has closed. The next period will open in March 2021.
