In 2021 Healthy Charlotte Alliance will be celebrating 80 years!

In celebration of the Alliance’s 80th anniversary, our 2021 grants will look a bit different.  We invite you, our active members, to nominate a local health nonprofit to be considered for a high-impact grant.

The Alliance will be awarding $80,000 in 2021, in recognition of celebrating 80 years of impact!

The health nonprofit you nominate must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit serving Mecklenburg County residents, and align with at least one of Healthy Charlotte Alliance’s four investment priorities:

    • Mental Health
    • Access to Care
    • Chronic Disease Prevention
    • Violence Prevention


  • The Grants Committee will be accepting active member nominations through December 18, 2020.
  • Members must have an active membership (June 1, 2020-May 30, 2021) and may select only one health nonprofit to nominate.
  • The Committee will then narrow the pool to 5-7 health nonprofits who will then be invited to participate in a virtual interview with the Grants Committee.
  • Following the interviews, the Grants Committee will select finalists to be presented to the Investing Members for a final vote.
  • Grant(s) will be awarded at the Annual Meeting and Community Health Classroom on May 19, 2021.
  • In recognition of the increased demand for services, limited resources, and unprecedented challenges faced by nonprofits at this time, awarded grant(s) will be unrestricted and will support overall mission and operations, allowing nonprofits to use the funds toward meeting their greatest need.
  • Further, nonprofits selected for an interview will not have to complete an application, rather will simply participate in a virtual discussion. If selected for a grant, they must agree to the Alliance’s terms of disclosure and promotion and report back on how the funds were used.
