Grant Priorities

The Jefferson Regional Foundation, with target communities south of Pittsburgh, PA, has used the Jefferson Hospital Community Health Needs Assessment as an important source of community information to identify grantmaking priorities (see Community Reports). The Foundation intends to engage with Jefferson Hospital and community partners in an ongoing assessment and review of community needs. This will result in the evolution of grantmaking priorities over time.

The Foundation has identified six priority areas for its grantmaking, which are:

  • Health and Wellness
  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
  • Workforce and Economic Opportunity
  • Civic Engagement and Policy Work
  • Early Childhood and Youth Development
  • Capacity Building
