Alliance Healthcare Foundation (AHF) works to advance health and wellness for the most vulnerable in San Diego and Imperial counties through collaborative funding, convening and advocacy.

We believe wellness is a state of complete physical, mental, spiritual, economic and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Society, community, neighborhood and family are collectively responsible for creating an environment of health and wellness. Wellness is personal and is not the same for everyone. We envision a region where equitable health resources lead to universal health and well-being.

Below you will see our current funding opportunities.

Tips to get you started:

  • You will need to create a free Submittable Account in order to submit applications to these opportunities. Here is a quick guide on how to get started: https://submittable.help/en/articles/904856-how-do-i-submit 
  • You may save a draft of your work if you would like to finish filling out the form later.
  • We will follow up with you about your submission by email. Please be sure the email address you used to sign up with is one that you check regularly.

 As you might expect, AHF receives a high volume of requests each year that exceed what we are able to fund. Unfortunately, this means that in a typical year, less than 15% of grant applications result in funding.
