The Thacher Community Grant supports small yet high impact community-based projects that promote excellence in health care for women, infants, and families worldwide, especially those that show innovative means to meet their communities’ needs.
Preference will be given to projects that address community needs related to community needs especially those that focus on racial inequity and/or health disparities; care for people with physical or mental illness and disability; and/or care of populations in low-resource settings.
Applicants from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply; especially midwives, students, retirees, community groups, advocates, and other health professionals who work with under-resourced communities.
Funded by the Frances T. Thacher Midwifery Leadership Endowment.
