Using Research in Grant Applications

We believe that grant writing is among the most important areas in which a nonprofit must excel in order to obtain the funds necessary to serve a particular population. The Charities encourages collaboratives seeking to secure funding to advance community health for the underserved.

When preparing your proposal, keep top of mind the audience you are writing to and also the population you are hoping to serve. Sometimes the best evidence for your argument is a hard fact or visual representation of a fact. While an illustration often works well, you still need to create context for your reader and draw the connections you want him or her to make.

Project Safety Net is an excellent tool to illustrate the needs also allows health planners to layer safety net locations over sub-county uninsured maps. This uninsured data resource was developed by the Charities through a unique estimation model. Together, these tools enable planners to prioritize and identify with greater specificity underserved areas where there is insufficient capacity and to determine safety net expansion potential.

Through research-informed grantmaking to Texas nonprofits, St. Luke's Episcopal Health Charities, a separate component of St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System, improves community health and reduces health disparities.  Our Center for Community-Based Research is dedicated to community-based participatory research practices that foster informed action, collaboration and empowerment for the medically underserved and other vulnerable populations.
