In order to be considered for a Mission Support Grant, local non-profits are encouraged to demonstrate past and planned innovations, collaboration with other organizations and their unique role in improving health and wellness across San Diego and Imperial Counties.
“Organizations best poised to be selected as a Mission Support Grant recipient are those that are working to improve operations in terms of reduced costs, improved quality and/or greater capacity, as well as effective leadership and sustainability,”
Earlier this year, more than 80 non-profit organizations applied for AHF’s Mission Support Grants program, and 16 grants between $30,000 and $100,000 were awarded. Grant recipients were chosen through a detailed process involving AHF’s board of trustees, data analysis and community feedback.
“The $100,000 Mission Support Grant we received from AFH last June has enhanced our ability to help Somali and other African families become responsible, independent and contributing members of San Diego,” said Ahmed Sahid, president and CEO, of Somali Family Service of San Diego. “The much-needed funds have also helped us bolster critical programs designed to promote health, education, economic success and leadership skills; programs that are essential for helping our community thrive.”
