Responsive Grants

Responsive Grants (Up to $25,000)


To respond to certain requests in a timely manner, Alliance Healthcare Foundation provides responsive grants up to $25,000.

Responsive grants may be:

  • time-sensitive
  • an important co-funding opportunity with other funders
  • a novel funding opportunity
  • leadership & organizational development-based
  • support of a community event or activity through table and ticket purchases (does not include sponsorships)

Criteria used by Program staff to assess the grant request include: target population, evidence base for program design, geographic location of program, strengths and weaknesses in request, and budget, among others. There is no deadline for responsive grants.

To learn if your request meets our criteria, we have developed a Responsive Grants Questionnaire to help. Access to the Responsive Grant Application will be opened if the criteria are met.

If you have any questions or would like to apply via paper application, email Executive Director Nancy Sasaki at or Program Officer Michele Silverthorn at
