Grants and Sponsorships

Within the Mid-Atlantic States, Kaiser Permanente is committed to grantmaking that improves health and reduces racial, ethnic, and other health disparities in the communities we serve. Through our grantmaking and partnerships, we strive to advance health equity, by addressing socio-economic determinants of health, with a particular focus on under-resourced communities. We aim to be trusted partners in total health, collaborating to help people thrive, and creating communities that are among the healthiest in the nation.


Kaiser Permanente is always in search of new partners to advance community health through our grantmaking, sponsorships, and other activities. Our grant funding and sponsorships allow us to forge meaningful partnerships with local nonprofits, public agencies, like-minded foundations, and other institutions – as we strive for the greatest possible impact on health.

Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States offers two grant rounds annually, generally in the Spring and Fall. Our program staff work closely with community organizations in each of our service areas (Greater Baltimore, DC and Suburban Maryland, and Northern Virginia) to identify organizations whose work aligns with our strategy focus areas, who are then invited to submit grant applications. Our grants address three prioritized areas of need in the region as documented in our Mid-Atlantic States Community Health Implementation Strategy. They are: socio-economic security, health care access, and mental health and wellness.

If you are interested in applying for a grant, please complete our Funding Eligibility Questionnaire. This questionnaire is the first step in applying for funds. Grants can be awarded only after formal application and submission of all requested necessary information.

Kaiser Permanente also has a national grants program for nonprofits with a wider geographic scope.


Kaiser Permanente sponsorships support non-profit organizations that serve our Mid-Atlantic States service area. Sponsorship funds are awarded primarily for events or activities of organizations that work to increase health care access, support for mental health and wellness, access to economic opportunity, access to healthy foods and physical activity, and health care workforce development.

Please submit your request for sponsorship online at least 60 days prior to your event or activity. We consider sponsorships once per month and will contact you with our decision as soon as possible.

Please note that sponsorship requests for golf tournaments or other athletic events, religious or political activities or events, social organizations, endowments, local chamber of commerce activities or events, individuals, memorials, or field trips will not be considered.
