The Healthy Community Fund was created in 2008 to support community programs or projects throughout Washington County, Wisconsin, that will positively affect the health and wellness of those living and working within this area.

It is the goal of the fund to help support organizations that are advancing community health through collaborative and evidence-based practices targeting the priority health needs in Washington County. Click here to see the list of priority health needs in Washington County.

The Healthy Community Fund’s highest funding priority is given to programs or projects that address social determinants of health and/or target underserved populations. Funding is available for organizations in good standing that represent a range of demographics within Washington County.

Some examples of programs areas that will be considered for funding include, but are not limited to, community collaborations or initiatives; child, youth and families; elderly; transportation; access to care; and/or environmental change. The minimum dollar amount for a request is $10,000 and one application may be submitted per organization.

The Healthy Community Fund does not fund organizational operating expenses, salaries or routine operating functions that do not pertain to the project. Additionally, the fund does not support event sponsorships, sporting events/teams, clubs or individuals.

Oversight for the Healthy Community Fund is provided by a committee of individuals from local communities, Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, Froedtert West Bend Hospital and Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Community Physicians. The Healthy Community Fund is administered through Froedtert Health’s Community Engagement Department in partnership with Froedtert West Bend’s Community Foundation. The Foundation is a member of Froedtert Health, a regional hospital system that includes Froedtert Hospital, Milwaukee; Froedtert Menomonee Falls Hospital, Menomonee Falls; Froedtert West Bend Hospital, West Bend; and Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Community Physicians.
