Community Health Improvement Fund Grants

St. Luke’s is committed to improving the health of people in the communities we serve. Our Community Health Improvement Fund (CHIF) supports community health improvement activities. The fund was established to provide financial or in-kind support to nonprofit organizations that are also working to improve the health of people in the community. Priority is given to nonprofit organizations that support St. Luke’s Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) significant health needs.
