Philosophy:  Alliance Healthcare Foundation (AHF) aims to be a partner that is responsive to the emergent needs of our community. We understand that unexpected events occur and thus prioritize supporting organizations that meet the criteria outlined below.
Criteria:  Responsive grant requests range up to $25,000 and must be all of the following:

  • be time sensitive
  • respond to a one time, unexpected circumstance*

*Please note that Responsive Grants are not intended to support general operating costs or sponsorships.

Being a previous AHF grantee does not preclude an organization from applying for our 2022-2023 (FY223) Responsive Grant.  To qualify for AHF"s Responsive Grant support, your organization must meet these criteria:

  • Be a 501(c)(3) or have a 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor, and
  • Serve regions in San Diego County and/or Imperial County, and
  • Be aligned with AHF’s mission of advancing health and wellness for the most vulnerable in San Diego County and/or Imperial County, who often experience inequities and injustices in health and social outcomes.

Funding is provided throughout the year until funds are expended.  Typically, we fund one request per organization per year; if your organization has already received a Responsive Grant this fiscal year and has another request, please contact Min Kim.

Should you have any questions, please contact Program Officer, Min Kim via email

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
