Changes to EPHT Grantmaking in 2023
In keeping with the original purpose of the Trust, EPHT Trustees have identified health priority areas and a geographic footprint to reflect the Trust’s commitment to center access to health care. The Trust defines “centering access” as addressing barriers and providing person-centric medical services across the spectrum of care, from prevention to aftercare. Read more about EPHT’s Funding Guidelines for 2023 grantmaking.
St Louis Community Foundation staff held virtual sessions for nonprofits in December and January regarding EPHT’s funding priorities and the 2023 grant cycle. You can access a recorded session here.
