Mini Grants

The Buhl Regional Health Foundation is a private health foundation. We support the important work of non-profit agencies that strive to improve the health of Mercer County’s children and, in-turn, improve the health outcomes of the entire county. We do this by listening, partnering, and providing resources.

Mini Grants

Buhl Regional Health Foundation will award mini-grants in 2024 for implementation of initiatives that strive to increase children’s access to optimal health and well-being and/or improve their access to quality, holistic healthcare.

BRHF’s Mini-Grants Application has been developed to support smaller grant requests of up to $5,000 that meet the guidelines of BRHF grant policy.

The Buhl Regional Health Foundation, along with our community, has identified several important focus areas pertaining to the health-related grants we provide. We encourage collaborative partnerships and programs that invest in all people.

Funds are available until exhausted for current budget year.

Interested applicants are welcome to reach out to Kimberly Porsch, Director of Grantmaking, to discuss an idea before submitting an online application.
