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.

2023 EPHT Grant Cycle

EPHT will award grants in two cycles per year, with decisions announced in the second and fourth quarter. 501(c)3 or fiscally sponsored organizations may submit a Letter of Interest (LOI) through the St. Louis Community Foundation grants portal. Following review of the LOIs, a limited number of organizations will be invited to submit a full application. Please refer to the timeline below for grant cycle dates.

Due to the volume of requests, organizations may submit one LOI per calendar year.
