Our Programs

The Mother Cabrini Health Foundation (“Cabrini Foundation”) has three grantmaking programs. Our programs provide grants to nonprofit organizations serving low-income individuals, families and communities in New York State.

Our Statewide Grants Program is open to the public and focuses on identifying projects that best serve our annual grant priorities (see our 2022 priorities for more information). Please note that the proposals funded under the Statewide Grants Program can provide services throughout the entire state of New York, or selected areas of New York.

Our Regional Grants Program is designed to ensure proportionate regional funding for targeted, mission-aligned projects identified by the Cabrini Foundation. Applications for this program are accepted on an Invitation-Only basis.

Our Special Initiatives Grants Program seeks to fund innovative or impactful projects that help further the mission of the Cabrini Foundation. Applications for this program are accepted on an Invitation-Only basis. The Cabrini Foundation strongly encourages members of the public and organizations to submit ideas regarding initiatives to be funded under the Special Initiatives Grants Program. Instructions related to the process of submitting ideas to the Foundation will be provided soon. Please check back.
