2013 Community Grants and Sponsorship Program

The Community Grants and Sponsorship program is a key initiative of the Keck Medical Center of USC community benefit program and supports our goal to address the unmet health needs of our community.

Community benefit programs or activities are designed to provide treatment and/or promote health and healing in response to community needs. They are not provided for marketing purposes, nor are they provided solely to Keck Medical Center of USC patients. To qualify as community benefit, initiatives must respond to an identified community need and must meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Improves access to health care services;
  • Enhances the health of the community;
  • Advances medical or health knowledge; or
  • Relieves or reduces the burden of government or other community efforts.

Community Grants

To implement our community benefit plan, the Keck Medical Center of USC has chosen to partner with community nonprofit groups and affiliated USC organizations whose programs align with the strategic priorities identified in our hospitals’ Community Health Needs Assessment. We will provide a limited amount of grant funding to community programs that address our priorities, and will consider grant requests of up to $25,000. Projects conducted in the East Los Angeles community, where the hospitals are located, will be given special attention. For consideration, a three-page grant application request must be received by February 12, 2013.
