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

The Buhl Regional Health Foundation will open applications on a rolling process for mini-grants – grant funding requests of $5,000 and less – tp support organizational projects with the potential for big impact despite minimal budgetary requirements.

This 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 (BRHF) is a private health foundation, committed to making a positive impact on the health and well-being of the community we serve through education, grants, scholarships and collaborative partnerships with local organizations. Our mission to identify and address the diverse health care needs of the community gives us the unique opportunity to invest in your innovative solutions. We encourage collaborative partnerships and programs that invest in all people.
