Kaiser Permanente is dedicated to improving the health of people living and working in the West San Fernando Valley and Ventura County. Beyond contributing to strengthening the health care safety net through provision of emergency medical care, charity care, Medi-Cal and Healthy Families services, and Kaiser Permanente charitable coverage programs, we provide qualified nonprofit organizations with grant funding in order to improve the health and well being of the communities we serve. In 2016, Kaiser Permanente provided nearly $300,000 in grant funding to non-profit organizations in Ventura County and Western San Fernando Valley.
Kaiser Permanente’s Ventura County and Woodland Hills Medical Center currently provides a three year grant cycle. The next round of online grant applications will be in 2020 where grant workshops will be held and applications will be reviewed by volunteer Kaiser Permanente employees and staff. Funding priorities will be based on the Community Health Needs Assessment.
