At Kaiser Permanente Northwest, we cultivate thoughtful partnerships with local organizations that align with our mission and promote the mental, physical, and social well-being of people in Oregon and Southwest Washington. Many of these partnerships are created through our grants and event sponsorships that support vital community programs and services, and address issues that affect the overall health of the community.
Our grantmaking programs align with our local and national Community Health priorities and strategies to meet the health needs of the communities we serve. Grant proposals are accepted on an invitation-only basis; no unsolicited proposals are accepted. The KP Gives – Volunteer Grant Program has a designated open period for submissions.
