In 2008, the Sentara Health Foundation
awarded more than half a million dollars in community grants, funding projects to improve access to healthcare, aid the frail and elderly, improve pregnancy outcomes, and build coalitions with other organizations to address important health care issues.
A list of community grants awarded is now available online in the Sentara Health Foundation 2008 Annual Report, which illustrates the many ways the Foundation has served the community, including community grants, sponsorships, and personal stories from those who benefited from Foundation funding.
“Our community has an outstanding healthcare resource with Sentara,” said Joan Brock, Chairman of the Sentara Healthcare Board Foundation Committee. “The Sentara Health Foundation is just a small sampling of all the outstanding things that donors have made possible over this last year.”
