AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation’s Connections for Cardiovascular Health Accepting Grant Applications
The AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation is accepting applications for the 2012 Connections for Cardiovascular Health program. Launched in 2010 with a $25 million charitable contribution from biopharmaceutical company AstraZeneca, the program seeks to improve cardiovascular health within the United States and its territories. In 2011, the program awarded more than $3.6 million in grants to over twenty organizations working to improve cardiovascular health in their communities.
To qualify for a grant, applicants must be a U.S.-based nonprofit 501(c)(3) or similar organization and be engaged in charitable work in the United States or its territories that addresses the program’s mission of improving cardiovascular health. Programs selected for funding will be working to address an unmet need related to cardiovascular health in a community, respond to the urgency around addressing cardiovascular health issues (including cardiovascular disease or conditions contributing to cardiovascular disease), and improve patients’ lives through the services provided.
Grants of $150,000 and up will be provided annually to innovative initiatives that are focused on clearly defined and measurable results and processes. The recipient organization must be able to demonstrate ongoing activity to improve cardiovascular health and the ability to sustain the initiative after the grant funds are spent.
