Nearly $700,000 awarded for health and wellness support

September 27, 2021

Since 1950, charitable people have created discretionary and field-of-interest endowments at the community foundation. Their generosity gives us the flexibility to fund a variety of causes in southeastern Virginia.

The Hampton Roads Community Foundation recently awarded $673,260 in grants to 9 nonprofit organizations within the Health & Wellness program area.

Why It matters: We believe that the support of health and wellness programs is paramount to our mission. We build a stronger, more equitable region when we help provide necessary resources for those in need.

Nonprofit organizations that received grants in September include:

Urban Renewal Center, $150,000 over three years to support a shelter director for homeless programming.

Norfolk Senior Center, $100,000 over two years to support the Lifestyle Change Program for Diabetes.

T2 Fitness Foundation, $30,000 over two years to launch the T2 Fresh Start Initiative.

Virginia Harm Reduction Coalition, $50,000 over two years to expand services to people who use drugs in Hampton Roads.

Virginia League for Planned Parenthood, $45,000 to support an additional nurse practitioner.
