Dignity Health Community Grants
We can't change the world by ourselves. Partnering with other nonprofit organizations who share our vision and values is the only way to bring about real improvements in the health and quality of life of the communities we serve. Our Community Grants program is one way we are working with others to increase access to quality care.
Organizations that receive grant funds from us are working to improve access to jobs, housing, food, education and healthcare for people in low-income and minority communities.
Dignity Health has distributed over $6 million to 303 organizations in the Sacramento area and $46.6 million to deserving projects throughout the Dignity Health system.
