SHD Grants Program
The SHD Grants program provides funding to local community and school-based programs that promote our mission to enhance the lives and health of District residents. The program is organized into 2 main funding categories: community-based and school-based. Click here for the 2023-24 grants information.
Caring Community Grants
Each year, SHD provides grants through our competitive Caring Community Grants program, ranging from $10,000 to $200,000 to local non-profits that offer health services to District residents.
Through the Healthy Schools Initiative, SHD annually provides competitive grants up to $50,000 to community organizations that serve eight local school districts.
Holiday Food Grants
The Sequoia Healthcare District and Dignity Health Sequoia Hospital are happy to announce $90,000 in holiday food grant funding for 2022. In addition to addressing the issue of hunger, we recognize that food programs are also a way to address social isolation and the needs of unhoused populations.
Congratulations to our grantees for helping address food insecurity among vulnerable populations on the Peninsula: Karat School Project, First Step Community Services, Nuestra Casa, Friends for Youth, Upward Scholars, Redwood City School District, Ecumenical Hunger Program.
Major Funding Initiatives
Our Sponsored Clinical Services
Ravenswood Family Health Center
Sequoia Healthcare District partners with Ravenswood Family Health Center to provide primary medical and dental services to residents of all ages who travel to their clinic in East Palo Alto.
Ravenswood primarily serves lower-income families who live in southern San Mateo County and provides these patients with an outstanding medical home. In addition to medical and dental services, Ravenswood also offers mental health services and educational programs regarding chronic disease management.
Samaritan House Redwood City Clinic
For more than a decade, Sequoia Healthcare District has been the major supporter of the Samaritan House Redwood City Medical and Dental Clinic.
This unique service provider serves more than 1,000 uninsured adults who would otherwise not have a medical home and would rely heavily on hospital emergency rooms for primary care. Samaritan House utilizes the services of many volunteer physicians, dentists and nurses who work with professional staff to offer care. In 2016, with the help of Sequoia Healthcare District, Samaritan House opened the area’s first food pharmacy.
